... a museum paying tribute to the foolishness and bad ideas of otherwise brilliant men. Menagerie. Bemused at the Zoo-parc de Beauval, a truly world class menagerie. Surely many of these beasts are living much better lives in captivity than they would in the wild; surely many would not have survived otherwise. But as they play, and eat, and sleep, and mope for our amusement, something still feels slightly off; but am i just projecting into the cage? Former kings. ...
... br> like the one in St Remy en Mauges (photos of the church and chateau have made
it into the blog). It is a very special experience. ...
Well we went out exploring around Les Andleys on the Wednesday, we first found the local supermarche to have a proper shop and fill the fridge. We got some lovely fresh meat, kebabs and sausages ready to fire up the barby on our return. We returned to the centre of town and parked in the square. It was very pleasant wandering around the different little shops, and what was even better Serena only bought some nail varnish result! Back to the caravan ...
... to come. Not sure Peter really did but as the guy is so nice he didn't like to say no, so off they went (not me) - think Peter would sooner have fished but that wasn't offered. Hope it doesn't rain to tomorrow as there's nothing much here apart from restaurants. When we came back to the house we found a couple of DVDs & Peter chose Con Air!!! Insisting he hadn't seen it, I've seen it at least twice & knew it was terrible but what the heck., don't think he'll forget it ...
When we went into the small hotel/bar to ask where there may be any rooms there was a young guy who happened to be dressed in a religious white smock with hat who translated for us. After we got the room we went back to have a drink & he was there, but not in his popes outfit now, and he said it had just been for a joke for the couple getting married that day. Anyway he was quite a character, he had only just moved back here ...
