Off they go!

Well, this is one holiday that has been well-planned and much-talked about!  All weekend Raphaël & Camille and crew were packing and making last minute plans for their visit to Sardinia: and now the day has arrived!

Off at the crack of dawn (just after eight), :) the idea was to make the eight hours they need to get just past the viaduct de Millau and spend the night in a country inn they have used before.

In the evening we got the first word from them with a couple of pictures of the children with the viaduct in the background so I knew that all was well and going according to plan.

They are driving the Marseille where they catch the ferry boat that links the mainland with Corsica and Sardinia.  I think the trip is some twelve hours so they ought to have some fun!

Meanwhile back at home Olivier left this morning on an all-day school trip to Jublains—a very old and very interesting archealogical site just a couple of hours from here, in the Mayenne departement.

Jonathan and family were over here for awhile today.  Having dug the  foundations needed for a connecting wall he plans to use the nice five-day weekend coming up to start building his wall.

Here is another photo, fresh from the trail : Nimes.  If you have to be reminded what this town is famous for click here.  Here's a picture of our crew doing a little exploring!
