Where I stayed

We enjoyed staying here on this lovely site by the river, although a bit muddy underfoot and still some snow lying around we were able to have a lovely walk by the river into St Luce sur Loire, not a particularly pretty village with just the Hotel De Ville being anything worth photographing but still the walk did us good and a nice glass of wine before heading back was enough for one day although we dearly would have loved to explore Nantes we didn't feel we could do it justice in one day and using public transport so we have decided to stay here in May and spend three days exploring the city as it has so much to offer in the way of history and art.
We reached the port of Calais in good time to get the earlier ferry home, quite a smooth crossing considering the winds we met on the motorway. A meal at the Black Horse and overnight stay before our final leg of the journey home.We are so glad to be home again although it's been a lovely way to spend a winter we were ready to come home and lucky enough to find the weather is on the turn here after one day of rain we now have glorious sunshine so the trip was well timed all round to avoid the worst of any bad weather conditions. Well they say the sun shines on the righteous!!
The lovely Lorraine and Pete had left flowers and greetings and basic groceries for us so we didn't have to rush out to shop and we had a lovely romantic dinner at the Royal Oak to commemorate 22nd February which was the day we met in 2007.  What a lot of miles we have travelled since then.
This trip clocked up 3,250 miles So many places, so many new friends, so many good memories.
We can't wait for the next trip.!!
