|Before the last gig :)|
Here are some images from our busman's holiday trip around France and Spain. We haven't taken a holiday for 15 years so this was a rare treat and even the couple of gigs we did were different from our usual events and felt like a break from the normal.
We spent time with friends and family in 3 different areas - and it was just wonderful - and neither of us wanted to come back and are plotting our return!
We arrived back to the rain but thankfully the Indian summer we were promised has shown up .... but in the coming weeks I'll need constant reminders of the sun :)
Montmorillon - I love all the red roofs - this is known as the writer's city - the old town is full of bookshops and things to do with writing.

|Marremetaco with Paco (Tuna and Potato Stew)|
|The gorgeous waters near Bilbao in Spain|
|A day out at the seaside|
|We took a boat out to this little beach island - the Spaniards take sunbathing very seriously!!|
Back in France with some more old friends whom it's been far too long since we caught up with
|At the market (near Cahors, France)|

|Most houses aren't painted in France,|
but every house has pots and pots of flowers outside
glorious explosions of colour.
|Just behind our friends' house - rows and rows of vineyards|
We'll have to go back - didn't get drinking it all!!
How was your summer?
Did you get a holiday?
