Left Devon at 10am and got here at 3-30pm..... Bloody traffic was horrendous.. Nearly 6 hrs to do 180 mile.. :mad:

Day snooping round the area tomorrow.... then Tuesday down to the port to catch the ferry.. ::bigsmile:

Guess what stupid old *astard left their Computer in the Hall at home... :doh::crying:

Using one of my old steam driven things, and it`s so slow... :blush:

They are also very tricky when wearing ski boots...you have to sort of work out the balance point as you crouch without actually keeling over. I am never quite sure of the directional etiquette either...facing forwards or backwards?

It is how the Neanderthals died out. No flushing toilet and being forced to use French bogs.........little known fact

I refused to use them and found another


Actually on that point what is it with the lack of toilet seats in france ?

Is it so you don't stay in the loo long

My legs had went to sleep by the time I'd finished

Not much on my Bog today...

Just going to chill out and get the flies off the front of the M.H..

Going to have about 20 showers today,,,,,, so I feel like I am getting my money`s worth.... £31..... a night... :Eeek: :crying:

Lesson learnt, check prices before booking... :RollEyes::doh: Be warned.... lovely handy site for ferry terminal..... but.... bit pricey.. for what you get..

Another advantage of having your own loo with you in the M/H. (y)

Since rupturing the quadriceps tendon in both knees (on different occasions) I can't squat anymore. I'd have to start several months of serious physio to get the required strength & flexibility. Not sure I can hold on that long! :ROFLMAO:

Good morning.... and what a beauty it is...

Went for a walk along the beach Road/Path about a mile up the road. found a nice beach side bar.. bit of liquid and some nibbles and sat on the beach watching the sun go down..

Then staggered back to the Aire... (More or less full, now)...

Going off to do some shopping and stock up on the bottled stuff... then on down the coast a bit to another Aire, about 50 mile away..

Lot`s of Brits on here but no Funsters... :(

Will be back on-line when we have got to our next destination.. and put the eve quiz on..

Adios for now.. (y)

"Fort-Mahon Plage" (Aire)....

Had a little run down to here stopping off for a few supplies..

Those that have stayed here will know what a smashing Aire it is.. 2 Mins from town (Gorgeous and clean).. and sand dunes right behind us... (y)

Bought me a new meece,,,, so little quicker than dragging my fat beligerant finger over the pad.. :wink:

9 Euros a night.... that will do us for a couple of days... ::bigsmile:

Off to find a nice bar, while she goes shopping again.. :cheers:

I will put the quiz on this evening.. (y)
