A wander around Sarlat, and a hunt in vain
for an open restaurant, but we'd missed the French 'lunch window'
by about an hour and had to settle for pizza and vin rose instead.
Afterwards, we were entertained by some street performers
in front of the medieval Cathedral and it was all going so well until the sword swallower revealed his secret.

Coffee and hot chocolates, and games of 'Pass the Pigs'
in the medieval village of La Roque-Gageac
before a climb up to the Château de Castelnaud
which stands high over the Dordogne valley.
Outside - amazing views of the river below
and the nearby châteaux of Beynac and Marqueyssac.
and inside - a huge collection of arms,armour
and furniture from the Middle Ages.
On the way down, a stop off in a tavern
built into the castle walls, for sandwiches
and chantilly topped ice cream.
We could get used to this.

...after a couple of hours on Ebay,
a very nice lady called us to say she really wanted to buy it
and she drove down from Manchester
to take it to its new home
where she's got great things planned for it!
We were all sad to see it go, but have plans afoot
for lots more festivals and camping trips.

Two 'Sports Days' in one day.
First up was Maisy.
|The Green Team (St. Patrick's)|
|The obstacle race|
|The bat and beanbag race|
Next up was Jamie...
Let's just say he improved his ranking from last year.
Must be all that training he's been doing.
Molly's turn came later that day.
|Collecting her prize.|
|Waiting to start the relay race.|
Even the teachers had a go....
