Some pretty fungi and a very big slug

We have stayed two nights at a campsite near Felletin. We always wonder if the owners will have a great deal of English, some English or absolutely no English. On this occasion the couple were from Norfolk, England and havw owned the park for ten years. We had trouble finding a campsite before we stumbled upon this one so it was nice to finally switch the engine off and connect power. Next step was a glass of wine! We had a thunderstorm that night but we were snug and warm. We went for a walk today between showers and saw very lovely fungi growing on a tree. We also saw the biggest slug we’ve ever seen. You can see him/her at the bottom right of the photo. And the Salers mahogany-coloured cattle that we’ve been seeing have given way to the wheat-coloured Limousins. They are deserving of a post of their own, especially as they posed so nicely for us.

@teamfreak16 When we first saw it we didn't know if it was alive or another piece of fungi. We stroked it very gently with a leaf and it just fell off the trunk! But then we found two more. Vince has a better photo but I can't access it at the moment.

The fungi sort of looks like a butterflies wings? Did you notice that or is it just me? It is beautiful! I didn't know slugs come in brown? I thought they were sort of a gray color? Enjoy the the rest of the trip! When do you go home? I Have a question i have been wondering about since you started this great trip? How did you get your camping vehicle over the ocean? I don't think they put it in the plane's cargo or you didn't drive it overseas? How did you do it? I feel like i am on vacation with you! Such good posts of your trip! I will be disappointed when it ends! But you always have interesting posts!

Thanks for the kind words. I'm really pleased you're enjoying touring with us. We have a son who lives in Ireland so we bought the motor-home there in 2015. We left the vehicle with him until this trip when we toured Ireland for a few weeks then put the vehicle on a ferry which took us to Cherbourg in France. Early in September we'll take the ferry back to Ireland.
