An excellent dog walk this morning in the environs of Auvillar. I was pleased to see that the so-called Roman bridge along a track beside the Garonne was no more authentic than the Roman bridge in Glen Lyon. The difference was in the sanglier footprints in the mud of the path.
I received a letter from the French government this morning. My Legion d’Honneur, I thought, and not before time. Alas! I opened it to find a €45 fine for speeding as I went north. This is a disadvantage of having registered the car in this country. Fortunately the satnav squawked a warning at radar cameras on the way south, so I ought to have escaped any others.
