|After driving for roughly 600km's and only 3km from home, Bambi jumped out in front of my car. Yes, I killed Bambi. Fortunately there was very minor damage to the car and our insurance is comprehensive, with no excess. Another good reason to consider EuroLease if you plan to hire a car in Europe for more than 16 days. |
Much of the Dordogne is forested. The area around St.Cernin very wooded and is full of wild pigs and deer. It is hunting season at the moment, until March 15th, and the place is also crawling with hunters. We see them all the time although they don't come too close to the house (that is the wild life and the hunters).
The next day, on the way to school, I showed the boys where the deer lay just off the side of the road. It was gone in the afternoon when we picked them up from school. Henry decided that it must have just been having a rest and that it had now gone off to play with its friends. This was a good ending to the story and we left it at that.
