Abi nd Keevas adventures

For those who have read more of my bloglets, this chapter is written by grand-daughter Keeva and good mate Abi after their stay with us. Trés amusant.


Day One:

IMG_1278First we arrived in Lyon airport, we need a wee so we went to the toilet. They were clean. We didn’t know how to get out so we had find the exit. We found it. We met with granny and step and gave them a huge hug. Granny had lost her phone so we had to go to the information desk to find it. IMG_4211

We found the car and then we drove to Roanne where we ate quiche whilst watching the thunder storm.





Day Two: We woke up and it was really cloudy and then in rained but we went to get croissants, a pain au chocolat and a baguette for lunch.

We came back and decided to go around for a walk, we explored the town and ‘La Plage’,


and made a major purchase – white chocolate Oreo









When the sun came out so we decided to go to the swim park for a few hours. Keeva got whiplash and Abi’s tooth stayed in.

The sun came out for a bit at the water park. We went down the couple of slides they had about 500 times, as it was completely empty.

In the evening we went out for a french meal by ourselves and had speak french. Bonjour. Bon Appetit. J’adore le fromage.



Day 3: We set off from Roanne at 9am and went on a trip to Artaix along the canal, where we moored for the night.

On the way we sunbathed all day and went through some deep locks.

We went for a walk into the village when we arrived in Artaix, there wasn’t much there but we made some mates; they were scarecrows.



At the end of the walk we found the boat again!






Day 4: We travelled along the canal all day again and sunbathed in the hot sun.

this is us trying to drive the boat; its hard. Don’t do it. Abi just did it for a pic. xx

We arrived at Digoin that afternoon and walked into the town and had a beer (Granny had a beer; the girls had coke).


Abi brought us a pudding, thanks u legend 🙂 x


Day 5: Today we got too hot because it was 34 degrees so we went to another swim park, it had diving boards.



We are in Paray-le-monial.










We went out in the evening for a drink,

we had ananas and Malibu,

and a lovely meal, yum yum.
