Not much to do now, until the Waterair technicians come on 4th July to fit the pool liner, so we went to the Races! Nearby Le Dorat hosts the 'Courses Hippiques' with flat races, steeplechases and trot races. New experiences for all of us, we placed 2-euro bets on each of the 8 races - Tony and I lost every one!

Thundering hooves
Another gorgeous day, a picnic lunch and a civilised way to spend an afternoon.
