First Visitors

On Tuesday we welcomed our first visitors, Roger’s Mum and Dad. We picked them up from La Rochelle airport and after a slight detour (to much chatting in the car and not paying attention to the signs) we brought them home.  They’ve not been to France before so we’ve tried to give them a flavour of the country – the chateau at La Rochefoucauld, the resistance memorial at Chasseneuil and the market at Melle. We had a lovely walk along the river La Somptueuse and saw the lavoirs at Sompt. They couldn’t stay without giving them some work to do, so they have helped pick up our walnuts. We have loads, which will be pressed into oil later in the year. We are having a very relaxed time, which is what holidays are all about.

  1. Glad you managed to see so much while they were here, and it was good to meet them. Next time they visit we will have you all here if we have a verandah back in use! Thanks for the walnuts, much appreciated. Take care and fight off that dust, I know exactly what you are going through, it is a nightmare and as fast as you clean it all returns. It brought many tears with me as well at the time. Have a good weekend and take care. Diane and Nigel xx
