Goodbye old Friend

Date Added: 7-01-2018

Today our much loved "Mutan" one of our donkeys died peacefully. We are very upset as he was our faithfull friend and has been part of our family 2001. He had a great character and loved a fuss along with a carrot and his mug of sweet tea ! He and Glen had a great bond as Glen rescued him, I always remember when Glen brought him home, Glen said "Come outside, I have bought you something for the garden" so I was thinking along the lines of a huge pot or a lovely tree, what a shock to find Mutan in our garden eating the grass !
We have lots of stories and many fond memories and know our guests will have too.

He will be greatly missed, godbless, goodnight our old friend.

Home for Christmas and so I decided to take some time out and go fishing.

After catching a couple of Roach I was ready to fish for Pike. I didn't have to wait long and was rewarded with two magnificent specimens, a great Christmas present to me !

Etang Hirondelle is a great fishing venue whatever the time of year and if you want to treat yourself to a short break or even a week you will not be disappointed !

Andy & Mary's comments:
This is our first fishing holiday in France and what a great weeks holiday. Our first impression on arrival was - WOW - a spacious, comfortable Villa set on a beautiful lake.
Glen & Linda were perfect hosts, Glen with his knowledge of the lake and the fish and Linda and her culinary skills made the holiday very enjoyable.
Fishing wise, we had a mixed bag, our biggest fish was a 35lb Mirror , smashing my PB. Caught some lovely Common carp and another 30lb +
We are already looking at dates to come back in 2019.
