Just the tonic we needed

Our great friend Steve decided he had had enough of January back home in Somerset and came over for a short visit.  

What followed was a few days dedicated to some serious eating and drinking with a little sightseeing thrown in for good measure.

First priority after picking Steve up from Tarbes/Lourdes airport has to be lunch.  A short drive took us back to Idron and a fabulous restaurant where we had the most wonderful leisurely lunch.

A very sad start to the year

Early in January we had to say farewell to our lovely big boy - Djason.

He has certainly left a very large, hairy hole in our lives.

Spain for lunch this time, I think

Jaca is known as the "pearl of the Pyrenees" and is a cosmopolitan European city.

It is also important stop along the "Camino de Santiago", the Pilgrim's Road to Santiago de Compostela.

Building work on the Citadel started in 1592 and it is in the shape of an enormous pentagon. Both this and the cathedral have been declared National Monuments.

Up and over the mountains

A lovely sunny day was promised when we headed out to Spain for lunch

Col du Somport
