    Just spent 12 nights in France and had cracking weather. Got off the "Tesco train" late and headed for Abbeville first night, travelled to Vivonne next day where we found a lovely municipal site, then day after that headed to Moliets Plage and spent 6 lovely days there baking in the sunshine, messing in the sea and eating wonderful French food. Started heading north and stopped at the municipal site at Cognac (to top up supplies) for 1 night then onto the municipal site at La Fleche for 2 nights, and finally upto Honfleur for our last night.

    The weather was brilliant everywhere we went and the food, of course, was wonderful - love this way of life, just a shame we have to come back to work to pay for the next trip :cry:

    We also arrived home from France on Monday. The weather was the best I have ever known in September. It was so hot we had to resort to a campsite so that we could run the aircon. Pity we had to come home when we did as it was the start of the vendange, so missed all the partying, but I had a hospital appointment booked for Tuesday.

    Its the start of the grape picking harvest. All the villages have a party when the harvest is over. Great times had by all.
