Just sitting a/t the Marseille TGV station waiting for our train, and have found a decent internet connection, so have taken the chance to do a catch up of the blog.
Julie and I went out to dinner last night in to Contignac for a great meal at a restaurant called Le Table de Fontaine. Was a great setting in the village square, with all of the restaurants having their tables out on the street. The temprature was still 34degC when we headed home to the gite, so a little hard to get to sleep. The gite has been great, Alex and Nadine are friendly and helpful. We have posted some photos but if you want to book its at gitesnl, and then search for le petit mas cotignac.
At 2pm yesterday afternoon the temp guage in the car read 40degC... yeah totally roasting hot.... we made a fast track to the swimming pool.
We were up at 5am this morning and had a good trip into Marseille to return the rental car. Still takes a bit of getting used to... that if you are doing 140km/hr you keep in the slow lane :-)
Paris for the next 4 days, and it is the end of the sales..!!
Will keep you posted
