The French do this sort of thing so well - they must enjoy dressing up and showing off.
After our visit to the château we shopped on the market and Mike treated us to some Valençay goat's cheese. We ate it for dinner that evening and found it to be delicious and quite different from the St Maure goat's cheese which was until now our favourite. The Vâlencay was much creamier and smoother than the St Maure which was fairly tangy by comparison.
This is the restaurant we chose for Lulu's first dining experience
Mike and Jackie set off in slightly better weather on Thursday to continue their French tour and we knuckled down to a bit of DIY. We actually did very little of a useful nature but chilled out and caught up with some more friends.
The intrepid motorcyclists. They don't always wear matching outfits. It's a bike thing.
The week was soon over and we were back on the train to England. We think Lulu enjoyed her trip. She certainly enjoyed the attention and she travelled really well. I was proud of her.
