Not too much happened today - left Bordeaux and headed east towards Carcassonne for the night. Was a bit of a slow drive as I for some reason was really tired so need a few rest stops along the way.
Carcassonne is a fabulous walled city which on arrival we strolled through then later that evening when it 'eventually' got dark!!! We wandered down the road to check out the night time view. Doesn't get dark here till nearly 10pm!! Our room is just below the walls of the city so only took us a few minutes to get up to the main entrance.
The shops in here were beautiful!!! Some gorgeous soaps, hand made crafts, lots of local nougat and chocolate and quite simply beautiful little trinkets and 'stuff'! Had the local dish 'Cassoulet' for dinner.
But gosh, talk about windy!!!!! Haven't very often been stopped in my tracks by wind but this was one of those afternoons!! A lot less windy inside the walls though.
