    A nice day trip is to the lighthouse "Phare de Chassiron" the views from the top are spectacular. Be aware the lighthouse operators take a typical French lunch.

    Looks great there Ken, but their latest web site prices are 2012 and they seem to stop end of September. We would be interested if they are still open in October...

    We are now at Rutland Caravan and Camping site and the sun is shining here too. We have had sun all the time since we left Parc Verger although we have had a few early morning frosts.

    Our tap is now fixed and we should be home tomorrow.

    Now just look here young Mel, we travelled up through Spain and into France in pouring rain just to meet up with the lovely Chris and what happened. As soon as we got there---there is no denying it as we have photographic evidence--------We brought a little ray of sunshine so that Chris could change her Northern France rust in to a beautiful tan,you are just an old cross patch because you had no tele. and we did

    evidence included
