We stopped in Saint Pol de Leon for three nights with a beautiful view over the tidal bay. We walked into town to get 'our daily bread' and we took Poppy on the beach, which she loved. There is a little island close by, where you can look out to sea to an array of little rocky outcrops and towards Roscoff, where the ferries for Ireland and Portsmouth leave from. We had glorious sun and warm weather. Graham continued to moan at my 'Grannie' afternoon snoozes. But that is what our alternative lifestyle is all about.
Today, Sunday we moved to a site, www.camping-des-abers.com in Landeda, we need to get the washing done and this afternoon our little pitch looks very similar to a Chinese laundry!!!! The brush as a line prop and the van and hedge as fasteners or the line to be slung between. But clean knickers and fresh bedding will make it worth it. The site is very close to the beach in fact it is more or less on the beach The sun is shinning ( don't want to rub it in too much but a nice 25 degrees today with a little cooling sea breeze) but disaster has struck. I have run out of wine and shops do not open here on a Sunday so will have to wait till tomorrow or Tues to restock. My liver is sighing a relief though.
May try to get bikes out tomorrow as the roads seem quiet. On the subject of bike These French are a nation of Sunday bike riders. We past loads of Lycra clad men (and when I say loads I mean thousands!!!! All in little groups with matching jerseys in an array of colours) on the way here today Round every bend, at every junction and all gasping for air with well defined, large calves. Dedication but me thinks someone should tell them about the internal combustion engine Hehe
