What happens on tour...

Mes enfants ! What I have to do to get a good feed and a drink. So much talking, walking and biking... oh la la but it was worth it.

Cook's Tour in Caromb

There is nothing to say except, I, Hubert, was not allowed to attend. And it looks... perfect. Sob.

Bonjour mes amis

At last I can have a little break - all of that driving around France, and showing people the fine foods and wines can be a bit exhausting for a hippo. It was worth it though because they all had a very good time.

Now Gail and Maurice have abandoned me while they go off to England to look for houses to rent for the Rugby World Cup. ( I personally don't like rugby as much since the fields stopped being so gloriously muddy.) You can see they have left me well prepared, and I know they will be back for me at the end of August.

Here's a picture of my summer quarters, a garage The Active Gourmet uses to stash all their goodies when not on tour.  I am lucky because it is right by the River Thouet in Saumur and, though I am a sophisto hippo, it is pleasant to smell river smells from my camp.

I will have time in the next couple of weeks to download a few pics of our travels, so stay tuned.

Au revoir
