More from Tours!

Today is usually the day I join in the WOYWW fun at Julia's but since I won't be able to visit many myself I'm not taking part!

Yesterday we walked so much my feet ached but the plus was that my sugar levels were good and I allowed myself a treat (well, two actually ) Lunch was in the old city and was a special offer!

Iced pea and apple gazpacho, chicken caesar salad and mini lemon meringue tartlet - all delicious!
 We walked through the old town - almost past a fabulous art and craft shop -of course we went in - well....It would have been rude not to!!

Our walk took us over the Loire and  along by the side of the river and back over another bridge.

On the way back to the apartment we have rented we called at the bakery at the end of the road.... and this is what we came back with! 

with these inside 
Naughty. ...but oh so nice! !! 
Sorry boys - didn't save you any! !!

Today it rained so we got onto a tram to see where it's journey ended....The hospital!
We caught the next tram back but decided to go further up the road to get to the museum - missed the stop and went right over the Loire before we could get off!  With no tickets left our only alternative was to walk back - just as the gentle rain turned into a very heavy rain! By this time we were so wet we went to the first eatery we could find - a Creperie! 

Very old building, very nice savoury crepe but quite a walk to find the museum - by the time we got there I felt really ill - sat for a while and improved - enjoyed the museum but decided to return via the bakery - nothing exciting this time!
When I tested my sugar level I found that it was the lowest it has ever been since I got my tester!

Au revoir for now, I hope my family and my fellow bloggers are enjoying my photos! 
Thanks for looking, Chris

I simply adored the photo of the gazpacho. I've made gazpacho before, but that combination sounds wonderful. And those cakes. Wowser.

I am really enjoying your time in Tours. You have some lovely photos, and the one of the bridge is stunning. I was really impressed by the way you captured the entire bridge.

Sorry to read you got sick. I know Sally often gets sick if she walks very far at all. She would NEVER be able to walk as far as you two did.

Hope you have a good time with your relatives tomorrow (today in your world).

You have to have some treats in life and they look particularly scrummy :)
