We finally made to Bois Soleil near Royan. We arrived yesterday morning and were fully pitched up by 2pm. We had a great crossing from Portsmouth to Caen on Monday arriving at Caen at 9.30pm and were booked in Les Pommiers and settled down by 10pm. The next day we left at about 9am and arrived at Marans municiple Camping municiple du Bois Dinot at 3.30pm. This is the first time we have stopped at Marans and will definitely stop there again. On Wednesday after 1 1/2 hours drive we arrived and were we're fully pitched up by 2pm. It was a brilliant afternoon although it rained a bit in the evening. Today we have been shopping, and went for a walk up to the old war emplacements, just as we got back it started raining again. Who cares we are away ;D ;D ;D
You don't know half of it, I have to empty the waste myself, the drain is to high to put it straight in. Mind you once that is done I can have another large Brandy. I think the wife is getting suspicious as I empty it 6 times a day
This has been the worst year (weather wise) that we have had in 13 years of coming to France. But it has meant that we have been able to get out and find new places to go. We have found some lovely coastal walks in some places we would never had thought about going. Tomorrow is packing up day ready for Tuesday when we move up to Carnac.
Lets hope the weather is better when we get there.
