Wednesday 6th June

Off - not sure where but north, but by the sea somewhere.  We found an interesting site near a beach after a couple of hours drive - it turned out to be the one we stayed at last year - and didn't like!  A stop in a supermarket car-park, a rethink and get the books out again.  Decide to go back to Ile de Re as we really enjoyed the island last year.  Different site/different town but good site/ a bit of jiggling with the pitch to get satellite, bikes off, hot showers and clean sanitaires - could be here a while!  A great afternoon for getting the washing on - here we go again decorating the site with a lot of pants!

Thursday 7th June

Good weather - bikes ready and we cycle off to La Flotte, about 2kms away.  Like last year this little town is like Padstow, no big beach, and lots of restaurants round the cute harbour.  A wander round prices are excessively high for nice beach tat but they seem to be selling to mainly French holidaymakers.  Plenty of Brits here on half-term and a nice buzz about the place.  We stay for a great lunch, a huge seafood plate for himself and herself enjoyed hake on the plancha!  A slower cycle back to Sonia and rest in the afternoon sun.  Himself takes himself off for a swim in the sites great pool complex with lots of little rugrats!  Its really nice here.
