Je me suis promené aux Grouëts aujourd’hui et j’ai trouvé cette chambre d’hôte surveillée par un lion (et un chien !)

We did 17k’s yesterday, starting at 7am and the sweat was just running off us. Clever you spotting the dog and lion. The grounds of the B&B must be beautiful in spring. 17 K – that’s not bad! I guess we can be expecting heat when we get to Australia on 14th February! Yes, the grounds must be lovely and they also have a beautiful view I imagine. The temperatures are up and down. It was 37c the day before and 32c by the time we quit. Sydney seems to have a had a summer of bad storms. 37°C is pretty hot! The lion looks regal. I presume there was some tail wagging by the dog. He did a lot of barking as well! We are just starting the search for a gite that will not only take our dog but has a fenced garden which will contain our dog who’s middle name is Houdini. Well, if you have a dog called Houdini you obviously have to stay in Blois! I assume you know why. There was a plaque in the street we used to live in in Paris about Houdin. The B&B has a website. You could ask about dogs! No, I did not know the Robert Houdin connection to Blois – and thence to Harry Houdini and our dog Ted. I am so better informed now thank you. The B&B’s lovely gite is a bit rich pricewise for us though. I shall start looking in the area. You should try airbnb. My son stayed in a little flat in the main part of town at Christmas that wasn’t expensive and seemed good. I don’t know if you could have Houdini with you though. There is a little terrace at the back. Leave a Reply to avril Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
