Jacque and Yannick arranged for us to visit a local restaurant last night. Steak and CHIPS – excellent! The more we see of this current property, the more we like it. It took J and Y almost 13 years to renovate the place, and it looks wonderful
The day started with a visit to Chateau d’Angers, containing the famous ‘Apocalypse’ tapestry. 103 metres long, 4.5 metres high, 70 scenes. Commissioned by Louis I, Duke of Anjou in 1373, it depicts the last book of the Bible – Revelations.
Next, we popped over to ‘Fontevraud l’Abbaye’, where Richard the Lionheart is buried. It’s a wonderfully restored place – maybe too much so – bleached white brickwork looks almost brand new in places. It’s a ‘World Heritage’ site and it’s clear, a shed load of money has been thrown at it. See more at
A quick stop for a beer and a pineau and then back to base.
Jacque and Yannick are cooking for us tonight…

I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s!
My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community.
But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure!
On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there’s no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
