Well I've been away for two weeks in the Loire Valley, Two weeks away from TV and the internet has been tough but not carving has been tougher!.
We had a great time with friends and family and really enjoyed the stunning countryside!.
I thought that I would share some photos from our time there.
The countryside was full of wildlife from Crickets and Praying mantis to Buzzards and Kestrels flying overhead, the lizzards and salamandas were too quick for me to photograph!.
Elizabeth out collecting Blackberries, which tasted so sweet she ate more than she collected.
There were Oak trees everywhere all of which had been heavily Pollarded many years ago, the Acorns were huge too!.
We went to a fantastic wine festival in Aubigné sur Layon
Its a stunning village and a very well put together festival.
The wine flowed well indeed.
