Stone and River

  Having weighed up options we went into St Girons in the morning. We have got loads done but recognise that we will very soon run out of options with the tools we have, so tool buying it is. Picked up a couple of forks, PPE for chainsaw, string and a wheelbarrow.

Back to the apartment for lunch of chicken sandwiches in the sun on the balcony and then back to work. Sun shining so set about sorting the bridge. Basically the bridge is fine except for the foot step to get on and off it. So if we want to get stuff over it to put a roof on it means building a ramp either side. Decision was made to build walls to retain a load of stone and pour concrete over the lot. Got on really well dragging stone out of the river (nearest) until we were done for the day. Maybe another day or two will see it finished. Then, a car horn started papping in the 4×4 track. We ran up thinking something was wrong to find “Monsieur le Maire” to welcome us and flex his muscles… “Ooh La La.”


We stopped at the bar on the way home to meet up with Adam the old local French guy to try and find out exactly where the source was, well actually we were aiming at him showing…he has no time this week so if we have not found it before then he will come up and show us. Met another couple Alison from Yorkshire, Boston Spa and Peter her fiancée from Central America. Both working and living in Toulouse and have bought a holiday home in Salau, which we were then shown around. Very nice folk and they are already talking about having us over for dinner. A good finale to the day.
