Every holiday we have abroard has at least one day where we don’t really do a lot. It’s a bit of a tradition for us.

This was that day.

I know we didn’t do much because whatever we did didn’t involve taking any photos at all, so I guess we didn’t go anywhere or do anything really. After the ridiculously hot day we’d had at Château de la Roche Courbon the previous day I’m guessing we’d had enough and just decided to mooch around the gîte and relax.

In the afternoon and evening we went into the centre of La Rochelle. It was warm again. I think we walked around the old port for a little while and then retired to a bar so we could grab some dinner and watch England beat Trinidad and Tobago 2-0 in their latest group game in the 2006 FIFA World Cup. The match was held in the Stadion Nürnberg at 6pm, so by the time we were in the pub it was definitely late enough for dinner and beer. England were a bit drab and scored twice in the last 10 minutes.

As I didn’t take any photos on this day, here’s a few random ones from La Rochelle that I took earlier in the week.
