... and decided to book for 2 nights initially as its a bit overcast, although the lady on reception promised sun for tomorrow. We pitched the tent quite easily, but Jim keeps wandering around checking it. It's a bit windy so hoping it lasts the night otherwise we're stuffed. :-( just had risotto for dinner and having a cup of tea. We're both pretty tired so think we might play some cards and have an earlyish night. Fingers crossed for sun tomorrow.
Speak to you soon ...
... a great guide for this tour - a university student studying archeology and history so this site is right up her alley. No one knows why the stones are standing or what their purpose was and the site was only declared heritage in 1991 which means that many stones were taken and used for building houses.

Great scenery and the iced water was wonderful. 66kms covered today!!! I know some people who don't ...
... St Jacques (chopped Scallops in a sauce) another taste sensation!!!
Followed by Pork (from a Piglet) and home made Frites made from potatoes from the garden and
carrots in an onion sauce. Followed by bread and cheese and strawberry cheesecake
thingy!!! Obviously each course accompanied by a different bottle of wine.
We returned to the hotel and that was it.
