Who's on holiday (3)

Half way down a 5 to 6 hour slog, penultimate tail-end charlie of a convoy consisting of three caravans and a car, we stopped at an 'aire' (french version of a motorway services, though they don't all have fuel stations. These areas are easy to access and very clean and tidy) A little light lunch, then off again.

Pat Who - Is this what we're supposed to eat for lunch?                            
Bill Who - It looks quite tasty to me                                                          
Brigadier - It's certainly enough to keep us going for the rest of the trip   

Our stop for the next three nights is at Montsoreau, on the banks of the Loire just east of Saumur, which we visited in 2012. Our pitch is right on the river side, and it is only some 500 yards from the town centre. There's a small chateau there (as there is in every little town in this part of the world) and a few 'caves' for the wine lovers amongst us. Here I have to admit that I'm not one of them, as it ll seems to taste the same to me (a bit vinegary) I'd rather have a drop of stout.

This is the view from our front door for the next couple of days, and tomorrow we get down to the proper holiday..


  1. A glorious view and splendid light lunch too.

  2. You are missing nothing weatherwise here ! - gale force winds and rain : ( , Tony

  3. Pork pie in a French service station? Surely they haven't become civilised at last? Or did you bring it with you

    1. We took it with us. Always take the first meal from home, and with a caravan we have a fridge. Then we go French supermarket shopping for the rest of the time.

  4. I love the Who's. Glad to see Tom along, "my" doctor. And the Brigadier of course for security, sort of.

    Happy vacationing.
