St Valerien – back where we started!

We are back in The Vendee and are really glad to be staying put for four weeks after so much travelling around.  It was absolutely brilliant seeing Blandine and David again – catching up, going for walks with Indy and enjoying Blandine’s cooking.  After lunch, we set off for the final four hour drive to La Grange – the barn conversion we stayed in throughout November.  It was an easy journey on the peage via Bourges, Tours, Poitiers and Niort.

It’s ten degrees cooler than we’ve been used to lately and a bit rainy but Derek is still optimistically in his shorts.  We’re unpacking, catching up with admin and off to the supermarket this afternoon.
