Not too much to write about today because we spend 2/3 of the day driving, yes we are on the road to Paris. It is only about 650km from Millau but we decided to take a couple of days to get there. Basil Garmin took us through high waters and down dales today , must admit we doubted his decisions at times and were very tempted to find the nearest freeway. However we were proved wrong once again and he brought us right to the park. Not the best of parks but it is quiet because there is hardly anybody here. The holiday season here is well and truly over. the manager is a bit rough around the edges but he could not be more friendly and helpful.
We drove through some very pretty and scenic countryside and of course the villages you come across along the way are just so special to look at. We take lots of photos but you never realy get the right picture unless you are there. Some of the farm houses we come across looked like they were no longer in use but yes, people still live there and work their farms. When you stop to have a look at the villages you almost feel that the residents are having a good peek through their curtains. Other stop and wander why you are looking at their village as they all think it is nothing to look at. Well now we are parked here, long grass and all but we have had a cuppa so are feeling good.
Tomorrow the big smoke, we hope Paris is ready for us and puts on her Sunday best.
A good Saturday. ( had to look in my diary what day it was, another senior moment.
