Then head North for breakfast with Rosemary my Mother-in-law and John my Father-in-law. They are holidaying in Argentat in the Dordogne, France. The mission: I thought it would be a nice surprise to meet up with them on Wednesday and have a G&T with fresh picked Sicilian lemons, in the beautiful Dordogne.
The weather on arrival at Genoa was cloudy and threaten rain. Changed in to my Gortex trousers on the car deck, much to the amusement of the car passengers. My draggin cargo jeans are looking distressed dispite a wash. The dead insects are gone but, the sun has bleach patches on the thighs. They did the job and kept me cool in the hot weather and also worked as casual wear.
It rained from Monaco all the way. I crossed the Millau viaduct at 04:00hrs with only the darkness, wind and rain for company.
I found John & Rosemary at their campsite right beside the Dordogne river.
Had a cup of tea and toast then we headed off to meet again at another campsite further North at Les Cochards to find some better weather. Another 250 miles = 800 miles in a night and day. Mileeta has now exceeded 5,000 miles so far this trip.Mission accomplished: G&T in France with Sicilian lemon slice, oh and a sneeky bottle of Lemonchello to finish a home cooked meal.
