Day 5 and 6 From le Mans market tomatoes to Bess at le Mans 24 hour circuit and a Sabbath afternoon spent on the Loire River path.

Tomatoes to be proud of.

A visit for Roy to Le Mans 24 hour race track and museum.

Bess watching the motorbikes at the 24 hour Le Mans race track. There were quite a few going round and she would follow them through the corner for each.
Just look at that steering wheel in the 1950s !

Walking along the Loire on Sabbath

A holiday house boat.
Roy calls this bridge over the Loire “the wing mirror banger” we brought the mirrors in after cars squeezed past us. Pont de Montsoreau is its real name.
The expanse of the bridge is 600m and construction started in 1911. It was opened in 1917 and is one of the longest in France. It was partially destroyed twice in 1940 and 1944 during World WarII.
Our pitch for two nights at Montsoreau. The golden leaves of the trees bringing the season to an end. The camp site closes
for this season tomorrow. What a blessing it has been.

Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son , nor thy daughter, thy manservant or thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day, and Hallowed it.

Exodus 20 : 8-11

  1. Those tomatoes look delicious. I’ve stopped eating them here because they ask seem to be genetically modified. Looks like a wonderful place to spend a peaceful Sabbath. How would we cope without it. xx
