The hotel room was very large with 2 separate sleeping areas as it was a family room. It was clean and although their was a car park it was a really tight squeeze. It took a while to figure out where to eat as lots of the restaurants seemed to have closed down - although if you wanted a kebab their was lots of takeaways!
Nothing wrong with the hotel but the area was very quiet.

They put that in the other side of the double lock, followed by about a 20 meter Dutch barge pleasure craft, followed by a maybe 14 meter steel motor cruiser (like a Chris Craft), all of that followed by another huge double ...
... Flowers- roses, poppies, foxgloves, geraniums and multiple others that I couldn't name were in abundance and flourishing. His water garden does not really resemble the one in his paintings but was still a beautiful setting.
I scored brownie points by buying tickets ahead and we just sauntered casually in -avoiding a long line. Even Ben took some photos- his phone has a great camera.
Lunch at a cafe. ...
... and I went exploring. Combles is a quaint, typically French village - completely shut up on a Sunday. We found two war cemeteries and had a good poke around before the biting wind sent us retreating back to our warm cottage.
Lazed the afternoon away and Kate made us a delicious dinner of cottage pie. Couldn't keep my eyes open any longer and retreated to bed before the zombie emerged.
