Locks on canal at Castets-en-Dorthe

So Pepo is in Portiragnes now.  We took the 10.30 am bus from Beausoleil to Gare St Jean in Bordeaux, which took about 40 minutes to get there, for the shocking price of 2.80 euros RETURN!!!  The bus driver was very helpful and told us where to put the ticket on the way back and asked what we were going to visit in Bordeaux.  So bought ticket to Béziers for 12.38 pm and we had one hour to spare to have coffee and coke.  Friendly waitress was amused when I gave her a 20 pound note to pay and said it was ‘très jollie’, but not good.  After apologising for blunder, I gave her a 50 E note and she was even more surprised.

After a fruitless attempt to buy a vodaphone top-up card for Pepo’s mobile, he got on the train, coach 5, seat No 68, and I went back to bus stop.  Got on delayed bus just before 1.00 pm and Adonis had lunch ready.  After break, I took Bramble for a walk and then we had coffee, followed by nice relaxing time in the sun and dinner of breaded chicken escalopes and watercress salad. 

I managed to access Facebook to answer messages and play on Farmville, Frontierville and Countrylife!  After reading for a bit, I was in bed by 10 pm.

Adonis woke me up at about 8.45, had breakfast and, while he took Br. for walk, I put things away ready for departure at 10 am.  We stopped por diesel at Le Clerk (only 1.08 E) shopping in super U and followed D113/D10 to Langon and then the D1113 here.  We are now by the canal at a charming little village called Castets-en-Dorthe.  Just had lunch, Adon is peacefully snoring away and I am about to do the same before afternoon walk along canal.

Travelling is my passion. Ever since I was a young girl I've been wanting to see the world. I studied languages to make this dream possible and I love meeting people from different cultures and countries. Having a motorhome since 2010 has made this possible and I hope I'll be able to retire travelling in one.
