Château Chante L’Oiseau

The new part for our essuie-glaces was delayed, so we diverted to a French Passion to the South of Bordeaux… of the vinyards where you can park up amongst the vines for free, as long as you taste some of their wines. So not exactly free, unless you are very hard nosed.

We walked around the local town of La Brede..home to a famous French philosopher ..Montesquieu…apparently.

Park in La Brede.

The vines.

There was a great dog walk around the woods behind the vineyard, and we found this abandoned assault course/parcourt thingy, which I had to try out.

Mavis half hidden in the vines.

The wipers were fixed yesterday, Wednesday, and we drove up to spend the night near Angers. Today, Thursday, we are heading for the Aire at Honfleur, where we will spend the night, then move on towards our train crossing through the chunnel on Sunday morning.
