Once again for some unknown reason I decided that sleep was not on my agenda ...finally must have dozed off at 2pm till 5 but did manage another couple of hours from about 6.
Regardless our day started slowly & we didn't leave the hotel until after ten . The plan today was to head to the Pont Valentre & go to the lookout. Well, we found the path up the mountain to the lookout & I took one short look & decided " not this black duck" crumbling old ,old steps straight up no rails & sheer drops. Consequently I stayed at the bottom & my hero strove the the peak. From the photos it did look pretty damn good but he said I would have "freaked" so better I stayed below "unfreaked"
When "hero" returned we strolled along what they call the meander. The weather was fantastic & we really enjoyed a half an hour stroll till we came across a winery....selling lots of local wines rose & rouge & a little white. Oh boy ! Temptation in our faces.
Finally made it back to the old town & lunch in a charming outdoor cafe. Lunch was simple just a hamburger (French Style) but with chips .Chips are currently a novelty to us. Fraid we are creatures of habit .Oh forgot the of course a bottle of rosé to wash it all down.
Back to the hotel for a rest & went to sleep for nearly two hours. Planning quiet night perhaps a little BBC well that's the only choice & then to sleep. Tomorrow we catch yet another train to Bretenoux Biars where Robert & Jarmilla are picking us up. We are spending a week together in a cottage in a tiny village. The area we are staying has some of the most picturesque villages in the whole of France. We shall reserve judgement & wait to see for ourselves .
Just a warning not sure whether I can keep the blog going everyday because I have a feeling we may not have wifi in the cottage. Will do my best though .
