European Adventure Deel Drie

We had some great fun with our hosts and searched out other parts of the river, we found some deeper slower areas of the Vienne that looked good for some big barbel and carp, plenty of French carp anglers seemed to visit these areas, and tales of "Grande Barbeau" had me thinking we had the right areas.

Martin was the first to hook a decent fish and it took several minutes to land a wild river carp that had taken his bait before roaring off about 100 metres downstream and tangling with other lines on its way, but to Martins credit he managed to land it.

As well as a holiday we were also happy to help our hosts with work around their home, so most morning after breakfast we were out and about and working hard, the fantastic weather made it all that more enjoyable.


Sadly our trip was all to quickly over and we had to make the journey back through France and home to No20, its great to be away but as we all know its good to get home.

We stopped for the night on the way home at the small seaside town of Le Treport, we had a great evening on the bikes taking in some great views

We were also proud to visit the War cemetery at Etaple and pay our regards to the Fallen.

They shall grow not old,

As we that are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them,

Nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun,

And in the morning

We will remember them.

A Big Big thanks to Bianca, Hendrik-Jan and Martin for such a Great time, we will be back!

Don't forget you are welcome in England anytime
