We are going away on holiday in the next few days and will be pretty much without an internet connection until we return in early July. I thought I would put a few photos of Anne's visit on a post before we go. You can follow more of her travels (with more detail) and what we saw at her blog Anne in Oxfordshire. Be patient with her though, as she has 100's, maybe 1000's of photos to go through!!

Time to say good bye at Angouleme station. We all had a great week thanks to Nigel's planning, despite the constant and prolonged showers, which always threatened to disrupt things.
Hope you all have a good month; see you sometime in July.
