Today the ladies felt in need of a little retail therapy and Bergerac is very well suited to this as it has a good selection of ladies fashion outlets. Thankfully we were able to get Homer onto the car park we normally use close to the town centre, which since we were there last has been re tarmaced, there were even parking bays for motor homes.

Whilst they were enjoying the delights of the shops in the modern part of the town I went for a ramble around the old quarter and took some photos. We had a snack lunch in Homer and then we drove a short distance to  Chateau Monbazillac famous for its wine, most of the wine is too expensive for my pocket but it’s pleasant to walk around and view the chateau.





As we took the ring road around Bergerac on the journey home I saw the large Decathlon superstore off on of the islands, it seemed more my type of retail therapy so I pulled into their car park and we went in. I bought two sweaters which wash and dry quickly, ideal for when we are travelling in Homer. Of course my senior purchaser couldn’t resist the bargains and also bought two sweaters plus a pair of trainers!
