    One of my great regrets is I can no longer eat oysters. I had some bad ones in Brittany many years ago and I now seem to be allergic to them. The MH can't carry enough toilet paper to cope with the consequences of oyster eating! :)

    Heading down towards La Rochelle area on Thursday. Hopefully meet some Funsters while we're over there. Maybe get back to the Dordogne as well. Hope the weather is kind. Need some warmth.

    Have fun, have done a similar trip for the last 2 years and had a great time and sure you will to.
    We are heading to France on the 24th but not fully decided on the itinery yet as waiting to see what the weather is going to do. Please update with the weather towards next weekend and the following week. Thanks.
    We stayed on the municipal within the walls of St. Martin on Ile De Re.
