Back from Holiday and getting on with bits.

Our holiday in France was amazing but my camera was stolen and so I only got a few pics on my phone! Coolest temperature was 26 but mostly 32, although we did have some rain. Luckily it didn't affect us too much as it fell on the days we were travelling. Driving was fine, did over 2000 miles, crossed the Cevennes - 1132 metres above sea level. Went to Vallon Pont d'Arc, Avignon and Pont du Gard - a viaduct built by the Romans to bring water to the city of Nimes (famous for the indigo dyeing of cotton - hence demin - de nimes). Both dogs coped really well - I think ice creams helped!! We couldn't go swimming in the rivers because all were so swollen following the downpours experienced in France during May. It was just great though! Planning the next one!!







Straight after the holiday was the village fete; a red, white and blue affair in honour of the Queen's 90th birthday. Then on the Sunday my good friend Maria came to stay for a week and we spent the time at summer school with Lesley Irving working on design and stencilling for a piece called Repetitive Repeats.
Today I have taken the dogs to Nunney Castle in Somerset for a walk about.
