Hoping of better weather was wasted, it was a foul day!!! I headed off to get the hire van, to my horror a HUGE van with new rear window…eek must plan route home to involve no parking and no reversing!!! Mission accomplished!!! Phew. Parked the van at the end of the track not going up there with that huge thing…..and wandered up the 4X4 to crack on with work. Hans was at home due to rain. Murray, Clive and Al were battling on with cementing, walls, etc. not ideal and even less ideal as the cement mixer had broken. By 3.30pm it was torrential, we were all drowned rats so packed up and headed back at 4pm. Hot bath before we headed out to meet M&D for supps at St Lizier. They had had a good day in spite of the weather, a drive into Bethmale valley, lunch and a wander in St Girons and reading on the balcony!!!
