Blaye to Oleron

Yesterday went according to plan except that the charming and very traditional restaurant of the hotel in Blaye which had been such a highlight of last year's holiday was closed - the chef was very ill.

Here are some photos of the last 36 hours.

On a back street in Blaye we came across this street restaurant.
