    It's been a wet miserable morning so what is better than going through some footage from our last trip to France.
    If you haven't visited Montreuil-sur-Mer (miles from the Mer now :)) I can thoroughly recommend a stop there. Just make sure you all leave room for me. (y);)

    Have been there years ago when I used to stay in a gite not far away.... They have some big markets and brocantes there, lovely walks and views around the ramparts.... A lovely small town...(y)

    Thanks for that:giggle:

    Stayed there for a couple of nights in June, it's a very nice town and good aire. I did notice one or two motorhomes entering the town from the north side and over the cobblestones, rather them than me. Mike.

    ground next to the boules pitch.And we used it two weeks ago
    and now its been made into marked out pitches and we also
    got the last place!(y)

    If one of them was a silver hymer, it could of been us! Took a wrong turn somewhere and drove through the town, full of cobbles as you say. We didn't have any fillings left but managed to enjoy a lovely meal and a walk along the ramparts. Massive drop with no railings, the lack of health and safety was refreshing until I remembered Mr Mousy has a huge insurance policy on me:eek:

    We stayed at a B&B in Madelaine s/Montreuil on our way home 2 years ago (before we had the van). Very pleasant walk from there up into Montreuil, interesting area to have a look at if you have time.

    Now back in Sarfend for a couple of months.
    I was there last week. Somewhere close by is a source of some rather good wines as I came across a couple of Funsters (WU16***) staggering towards the aire under the weight of a goodly few cases.
    Nice to meet you guys - that bubbly rosé sounded nice.

    Hi Geriatric Wanderer nice to meet you as well, all of the wine made it safely back to Worcester. Good to meet fellow funsters on our travels, we also met fidget when he parked up next to us at Mortagne-sur-mer

    It's a horrible place and you will not like it. There is nowhere to eat, nowhere to walk your dog and alcohol is banned from the town center. It's even been know to rain there.

    Now stay away and leave room for me in my favorite aire, especially since its free and only an hour from Calais.

    Hi John
    Sorry for the delay in replying but we have just got back from our latest trip, 7 weeks wandering around France.
    3 Network kindly cut my data connection half way through so very little internet for the last 3 weeks.
    The videos are shot using a BlackVue dash cam and the editing is done on a Mac using the built in iMovie.
    Got a whole stack to edit and upload when I get the time so there will be loads more to come.

    Richard.
