Yeah back to France

We were so lucky to be able to arrange our trip to see our friend in France again. His holiday home is in a sleepy little village in Francescas in the south-west of France. It’s a rural farming area with the most beautiful sunflower fields…20140728-124754-46074029.jpg

We did a couple of rides; my favourite being to this restaurant for lunch…

This year we also went visiting some beautiful villages that we hadn’t previously got to…

We also saw some funny things…pizza from a whole in the wall? Macaroon undies?…

Now to share a real excitement, we got to see a stage of the Tour de France again. I don’t know how I didn’t get the places right but on Friday they were going directly through our friend’s town! We were so thrilled. Of course we’d been watching online and keeping up but I thought we’d miss it. It was a rainy day but still fun to catch. It was dry for the Caravan coming through, then chucked it down with rain then let up for the riders zooming through. They were protecting their leaders and riding in teams at this point. Got a great view of the yellow jersey…
