French Holiday: Day 7

Left Steve and Helen's around 8.30 this morning. Took a leisurely drive towards Saintes, our next stop-over. Dropped into St Emilion, had a wander round and picked up some wine for Roger and Oliver. Wandered around Saintes and bought Ann a nice dress ring (blue). Arrived at Chateau Mouillepied around 4pm. We covered 156 miles, averaging 33 mpg, average speed of just 35 mph.

Visited a local restaurant, 'Auberge des Glycines' in Taillebourg, right by the river and just a five minute drive away. Excellent food, but strangely, we were the only people in the restaurant all evening - spooky!!
