    Think it was an ordinary camera. Next frame, he's kneeling to take a low shot;

    It does seem to me that I've done most of my looking up in Berlin in 2013!! I'll have to try and make some new ones for this as the archive is lamentably lacking.

    We have a day here today. We are with a relative (who coincidentally is also on a drive through France into Spain) who is really into her wines, a bit of an expert and a collector. As such we are going for wine around lunch time, then a tour around the monolithic church and then a visit to a winery. It all went wrong with the campsite yesterday, we turned around and left. We are in a beautiful B&B in the middle of vines instead.

    Oh no, (to the first part of that) and phew to the second. Hope the wine is good!

    Your new venue sounds idyllic. Sorry to hear the campsite visit went pear-shaped.
    Spain beckons!
    I must admit wine was my first thought about your current stop. Ha!

    Basically, the site yesterday on arrival looked like a refugee camp in Calais. It was heaving, with groups of people hanging around chalets and reception area. My wife went to reception and they recommended we find somewhere else!

    They have had many complaints from guests and she said it was incredibly noisy at night. Basically, like the UK, where no one wants to pick fruit etc, the French don’t want to pick grapes so they ship in migrant workers from North Africa and elsewhere to do it. We like peaceful places. East access to showers and toilets. This wasn’t the place for that. The receptionist said they had asked the owner to close for campers but they quite clearly haven’t.

    Sounds horrendous. Glad you were able to 'level up' so to speak!
