Great blog! And well done! This is very worrying .... I'm feeling more than a little inspired ..... And it looks as if a night at Shona and Alan's place is worth the journey!

Re: Petit Tour

Robert, hi! I wish you good health in time for this. I have just missed out on doing 'un plus petit tour' - only 45 miles - due to ill health, and I was most disappointed. Bon chance et bon voyage!
