After many months spending our spare time in the UK it was time to dust off the pasports and return to the joys of flying Ryanair.
Brenda & David were in week three of their time doing home exchanges in France and we joined them at home number two just outside of the tiny town of Bouin.
While we weren't away for very long, we managed to enjoy lots of sun, great food, heaps of cheese and some rather neat churches.
Again, photos are to tell most of the story...

The counrtyside was full of not so sunny sun flowers - must've been rather spectacular a few weeks ago.
