DAY SIX - THURSDAY Today, we have finally rested for the night at Le Grouin du Sud, just north of Avranches. First we stopped at Carolles Plage, where we got fresh water. We didn't really fancy staying there and paying 8€ for the privilege! We did fork out 3€ for 10 mins of water. It never takes 10 minutes to fill our tank as it's never completely empty.

... how French I became during my stay. I got a haircut, ate snails, drove, and drank Calvados! Even nick and bryan noticed I had become a food snob because I only wanted the best food. My Saint Lo experience showed me what a true rural French town truly is. It was so tiny and I am glad I experienced the countryside! It is also a great base for the Normandy beaches as they are only 30-40 minutes away. The family there was warm and welcoming and the house was adequate. It ...
