    Where are you in France, somewhere nice, but then it's all nice isn't it!
    We are staying a few days at La Roche Bernard, for the luxury of endless hot water in the shower and the laundry. Then we're off southwards, not sure yet until we've read the books!

    Lots of French people and football fans.

    (Sorry... I just couldn't stop myself.)

    Wish I was!
    Take your time - no need to rush - that's one of the beauties of the place!

    Beaulieu sur Dordogne (last day before wending our way back northwards) watching the water in the river rush past!

    Had hoped to try out the Gumotex canoe that we bought from @Minxy Girl (at the Peterborough show) but the flow rate is much too high (440 cubic metres per second - needs to drop to less than 150 cubic meters per second before it's safe!).

    Have to aim for a lake next time!

    Hi SHRIMPS. Sounds great.
    How did you get onto the house sitting jobs ?
    We are looking for similar, just a plot to park on and watch the property.
    Enjoy your stay and how's.
    Mitch.

    Caromb, just north of Carpentras. A little overcast but 27°C, no wind, the smell of hot dry pine needles and a bottle of Lidl's Romanetti Rosato (€2.99 litre) - goes down nicely with ice cold lemonade.
    Haven't seen a flooding river since driving east from the Lot but some magnificent thunder storm displays.
    Come on in, it's lovely but it does help if you can talk Caravan and speak Dutch.

    Speaking for myself, I'm onto he DFDS Customer Service Helpline deferring my UK return by two weeks. They are a bit slow to process my date change so I fill the time winding up a few members here :)

    ....... and my smart phone is a steam driven Hudl1 - cracking value for money.

    Staying on the beautiful Aire at Objat. Been here a few days now and plenty to explore locally. Showery today but have had 32 degrees for a few days. We've showers and 16amp electric for 6 euros and a lovely location. Haven't bothered with campsites in our 5 weeks out and probably won't for the next 5 either. Enjoy wherever you are.

    Do you still have to get the access code from the TO or now just use a CC at entry?

    Just South of you near La Baule, cloudy and bit of rain today, thunder forecast for 17.00 but not here yet.

    Forecast better for tomorrow so a short hop to the Presqu'ile de Guerande would be nice, lots of aires and beautiful coastline.

    Just arrived at La Turballe on the beach site, came up from St Julienne des Landes after 5nice sunny days, lost wing mirror after been side whipped by 4x4 on way here.
    This trip has been nothing but incidents just hoping for better after the next poor weather spell forecast.

    Thinking of going September for the first time but a bit apprehensive. MIL might be in Nantes so thought it would be an ideal time to test the water but think we would use campsites.
