We are having to spend another week here in Annecy (not complaining!) as we discovered that one of the pipes carrying fuel had badly corroded and the bus was smelling badly of petrol.

Amazingly enough, about half a mile away we found a proper old skool VW garage full of Bay windows, Golfs, Porsche and some funky looking trucks which I'll take a piccie of when the bus is fixed.

Daisy has now decided that as soon as she is laid down, to flip onto her front and prefers trying to stand up rather than sit down, she has come on quite a bit in the 2 weeks we have been away. And of course she is chunking up! She loves croissants and pan au chocolat! She has a new habit of smiling for the camera and is very chatty. Her first proper swim was in the campsite swimming pool, pics to follow.

Anyway back to the holiday. Some piccies above of our recent trips out and about, weather still in the high 20's although cold at night. It would appear that all Japanese tourists we have seen seem to think Denni is Ewan McGregor! They asked for his photo and autograph and were a bit deflated when it turned out it actually wasn't him!
