Bat Flattery!

14th September 2018

Just north of Labouheyre, France

I am going to post another retrospective travelogue from my digital archive as I have run out of time to write much today.

Yesterday afternoon, when I tried to leave Montalivet to head back to ‘our’ bit forest I discovered I had a flat battery! If I only use the Jeep for successive short journeys over several days whilst also using it to keep my smartphone powered up then a flat battery is the inevitable result - this was not the first time!
