Rain and Beautiful Weather..

We moved a whole 13 km today.. to a small aire at Cabaret Sur Mer. Its on top of a hill with a stone circle adjacent to it.. Graham spent an hour or so washing the top of the van..as it was very grubby and he likes things spick and span. He is planning tomorrow to was the rest of the van. Think we may stop here two days and take a walk into the town tomorrow (supposed to be 10 mins away… we will see)
Well it was a right drizzly day. Great for washing the van though and Graham washed it all over today, so we look clean and tidy. Then took a walk down to Cabaret Sur Mer. The harbour is a UNESCO world heritage site and a really nice. We had a pizza in a local bar and the obligatory wine or two Walked back up the hill to Molly Really nice night. Graham has had his 'holiday injury' today (every holiday we have some sort of injury with him!!!) Well today is a twisted knee... all I hear is oooh arrrh as he walks....I am not saying he is not injured but he seems to be fine when he walks the dog.

The sun is out for our little trip to the next place. Warm and sunny. We are moving to the historical village of Locronan very much like the Cotswolds It was a centre for sailmaking in the 13th to 18th century. I partook of my first Crepe today, well French one anyway... it was bloody gorgeous...I tangled with feeling ill (too much sugar for my stomach) and had Salted Caramel... omg.. was it delicious... my stomach only objected a little, but didn't make me feel really ill...We then stopped at Chez Annie for Graham to have Bacon, 2 eggs, chips and salad all for 7 euros... My God... how many chips.. I had to help out. We also went for an evening walk around this beautiful little town and it was quiet and we enjoyed the stroll... very romantic...Sorry will put photos on next time not done them yet but here are a few from the last few days
