Stanley the Donkey

We have bought a donkey. He is company for Woodah, the horse. He is a Cotentin donkey, which originates from the Cherbourg Penninsula. We have named him Stanley. I will add some photos of him to our gites website soon.

South Brittany Cottage Lada 4x4

We have been and bought a Lada Niva 4x4. We thought that it would do for towing the boat and to come in useful around here. We thought that if we can find a chain harrow then we could tow it with the Lada. But we have not been able to find one, and we haven't been able to find what they are called in French. We know what the fixed harrows are and have seen them, but no luck yet on the chain harrow.

Art and Boats

It has been a while since I have added an entry. The art work has been going well, and the large pictures that was sent back to the UK have sold and the gallery has asked for another 10, along with some large hanging seahorses and blue marlins. So I am having to get on with the making of them as my parents are coming over next month and they will have to take the pieces back with them. The bookings for the holiday cottage have been doing well, and the summer is fully booked. I have just returned from the UK as I went back to take a RYA course to get a certificate to use the boat. I also took the ceveni test while I was there, which allows me to use the inland waterways of Europe.
