Our aim today was to get to just south of Perpignan and meet Nigel who deals with solar products and said he would set up a work shop for us to help us get started.
We arrived there for 11am thinking it would take an hour or so but we did not actually get away until 3pm after having chicken and salad and strawberries with them for lunch.
Nigel was a fund of information and again it was well worth the small detour to learn from him. He is putting together a quote for us to get some lights into the putbuilding in due course.
From there we decided to head cross country and what a good choice. We had a really spectacular drive through some incredible countryside, vineyards, farm land and finally through a spectacular gorge. It was lovely to be off the autoroute and seeing a different part of the world.
Stopped at a largish supermarket to stock up on provisions and bottled gas as we were not sure what would be open tomorrow.
We decided we would stop at a cheap place to stay and have a cheapo meal as we did not really fancy arriving at the barn at 830pm and then having to unload etc in the dark.
A cheap and cheerful place for a few roses in the sun a quick bite to eat and to bed.
