We stayed in Bordeaux on the way down to our holiday in France – I had a Big Birthday shortly beforehand and fancied visiting some vineyards and doing a couple of tastings.
We visited Chateaux Siran in Margaux, Chasse-Spleen in Moulis-en-Medoc and Bouscaut in Pessac-Leognan. The tours were interesting, particularly the Siran nuclear bunker…

Once at the gite we actually did very little (which was lovely), but I still managed to take quite a lot of photos – we had the usual good sunsets, as well as one morning with a thick fog. There will be more images from the gite in the film update I’ll be posting later.

On the way home, we stopped off in the Loire for a Chateau visit – Azay-le-Rideau this time.

And of course there was a decent selection of meals…


As we’d been to this particular gite before, we knew that there would be plenty of opportunity for photographing the stars.
