"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

En route again

The last few days have hot, extremely hot, at least 30 degrees if the weather forecasts are to be believed, and we have been visiting the local beaches, riverside areas etc, most of which we have visisted before, but, whereas as few years ago when we first came, it was a quiet, unspoilt area, it is fast becoming busier and more commercialised. In this area, the French are building and extending road networks like there's no tomorrow. One wonders where they are getting all the money from, and then, if one is a cynic, the thought that they are getting it via the EU and that we are helping pay for it comes to mind.
Anyway, we have caught up on the zeds missed on Monday night and are now packed up and ready to set off once again, this time to Coussa, where we shall stay for a week before setting off northwards again.
Not sure what sort of internet connection we shall have next week but if we have one, I shall try to post.
Laters, tout le monde!

Hi Jenny and Keith.
Closely following you on Google Maps, all looking good to me. Why Coussa?. Not being French speaking what is tout le monde! Weather 30-degrees Whow that’s some heat. Sun burn are you brown all over or like a Zebra crossing? [Ha, Ha] - Hope to see photographs on your return. Hows the car behaving? - Mick x

'tout le monde' means everyone. Mick. Brown in stripes - yes! Coussa because the gite is owned by the brother of Yorkshire Pudding - that's how we got to hear about it and it is in a lovely part of the south west.
Car (touch wood) is behaving impeccably.
