Holiday snaps 1

Hello all! We're back from our summer hols in France and Spain so I have some photos to share with you. I'll start with Southern France where we spent a week with Ben's family in a huge, ornately decorated house. Then I'll fill you in on San Sebastian and Bilbao. We had a fantastic time but by the end of it, we were ready to return. We'd had enough of trying to eat while chasing Gus round a plaza, enough whining about being too tired to walk 3 minutes after leaving the hotel, and enough pintxos to last a lifetime. Coming home was like walking into our house for the very first time. Wonderful.


So here's a bit of France, where we swam in pool and river, visited markets and beautiful villages, and Gus and Isi were transfixed by their cool cousin Alberta, her friend Louisa and a yellow Uke.
