hi everyone
we are actually in millau visiting the nez bridge made famous in top gear; if you are a fan of this programme; the bridge is really a viaduct and a very impressive one at that: we drove under it today and will drive over it tomorrow on our way towards paris to visit the musee de orsay which we missed when were there earlier; pete is really excited about another museum of static images to view but he will grin and bear it i am sure; had a great night last night catching up with dans mum and dad from england at a camp ground in a tiny village in france; it was lovely to speak continuous english to some people that we know and lots of hugs and stories all round the three course dinner we had a the local restaurant; it was sad to wave them off this morning as they headed south and we headed north; we are counting down the days to our return now and beginning to look forward to being home and catching up with everyone; we are missing the spanish tapas which we were finally getting the hang of on our last days in spain and trying to remember what we ate and how to order it in french from last time we were here; doing ok with the coffee and about to go now and embark on the evening meal quest; we hope the weather is looking better over there in anticipation of our return and for you all as well; we cannot believe how lucky we have been here as the sun has followed us everywhere and so far we have totally missed out on the bad weather lots of countries here are having; well done us;
see you all in a couple of weeks; take care until then
