And I can confidently say the French Alps are a darn long way from rural Oxfordshire!
We left the apartment at 8.45am this morning, and got to Calais around 5.10pm. 645 miles including a 40 min lunch break, plus 2 other stops: you do the math. Finally arrived home at 8.00pm UK time after almost 800 miles. And why does it have to get so hot? The car has no air con, and the temperature gauge said the air was 32'C. Even in England it was 28-29'C, which is almost unheard of for September. My brain is now scrambled by the heat and the miles.
Maybe it's going to be an Indian summer? Dry trails would be nice.
I have more than 350 images to sort through, although I'll try to get that done soon. Tomorrow is purportedly a day of rest.
By for now.
