Right, I've finally finished going through the 497 photos I took and have hamanged to get them down to an almost sensible number... well when I say sensible... 214 of them can be viewed in these galleries

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

For those with a shorter attention span I've tried to pick out the highlights below.


Chris (TeDeum) gets off to a good start on the journey down


Taking it easy on the campsite


TeDeum carrys on from his initial good start


The Dordogne at La Roque-Gageac


Stu, MarkyMark, Poldark and myself stop for a breather at Lalinde after a fantastic set of twisties.


Guinness takes to the pool


Chez ChrisG with the Marquis de Mark in the background


Chris (TeDeum) and Syras hut


Stu, Syra and Chris having dinner outside Guinness and Ediths caravan while they'd gone to the bar for dinner


The view from G's caravan, The swimming pool is behind the fence on the right and the building at the back right is the bar.


It's love at first sight for Dandy


The old church at the entrance to the campsite which has been converted in to an apartment


A random Chateaux we spotted on the way to Lascaux


My first cake of the trip, they grow a lot of walnuts in the area.


The view from the Bastide town of Domme


Local produce


MarkyMark with his mini carafe


Dinner with the Guinnesses


It's a bit too much for Catsbum


Dandy's at it again


The local wildlife was quite noisy at times


Syra know's how to impress Carpe members


Guinesses BBQ'd camenbert was fantastic


Poldark in action


Hoping for a place in the callendar this year


Can't remember the name of the Chateaux.


Chris, Syra and myself went for a look round and got locked in, while Stu and Poldark waited outside


The view from the top of the tower was worth the effort


Proof that it's not just me that wanders around in shorts and bike boots


Ray makes a new friend


While Tony has a slight issue with his fag papers


A Mk1 and a very big bridge



Tony and the bridge


I think pretty much everyone stopped for a shot similar to this one


Tony, myself and Catsbum under the bridge


"I thought it were only this big"


Tony, Kris and myself split off from the group on the way back and followed the river under the bridge for some stunning scenery





A random rest stop on the way back from the bridge
