Gourdon in the winter sun

Topless in Gourdon.

The Pug Is back in action after it passed the Controle Technique, which is the French equivalent of the UK MOT test – except it lasts for 2 years. It had a problem with overheating, but now has a working fan. I didn’t expect to be driving it with the top down this early in the New Year though! Couldn’t resist it with so much sun around!

The pic with the scenery in the background was taken in Gourdon this morning – it’s our local bastide town with supermarkets and a mainline station. Climb to the top of the hill and you get a magnificent 360 degree view of the local countryside.

The last time I remember driving topless in the Pug was driving back from a visit with our cycling holiday guests to Chateau Chantelle in the Lot Valley, which is the main wine supplier for Lot Cycling Holidays. One of our guests insisted on travelling back with me, not in our minibus. I think he got a bumpier ride than he expected! If any of our 2014 guests are reading this – don’t panic! – the C-Crosser pictured today with the Pug at Mas de Flory is our preferred mode of transport (with our minibus) for airport pickups!
