We seem to be getting quite good at packing up now but it still has to be done so we had a leisurely morning with Mum and I sorting laundry and packing and the boys working. After lunch we headed back to Laignes for a wander around the little village which is quite quaint and then went to a lake near Marcenay only 10 mins away. We had a walk along the lake and in the forrest, but nothing too strenuous. There was a ...

... a black bear (snoozing), Canadian wolf (prowling), bison (snorting), camels (sneering), big pigs (snuffling) and deer (hiding) - but no partridge or a pear tree. The raccoon was cute peeping out of his tree house and the porcupine's were alarmingly big - and spiky.

It's the largest piece ever found from the Celtic period and may have been a gift from traders in Cornish tin from Britain travelling south. There were plenty of ...

Wet day in Gigny

A travel blog entry by wearn4nz on Jul 21, 2014

It was actually quite refreshing to have an overcast rainy day to have a slow start and catch up on work and washing. Mum and I decided to pop to the Spar in Laignes our nearest village with shops about 5 mins away, but as usual had misjudged the timing and it was closed for 2 hours for lunch! Rather than return with no bread for lunch we were very adventurous and took off to Chatillon-sur-Seine (yes the same Seine running thro Paris) about 20 mins away and, ...
