Rain waved us off as we left our home for the past 2 weeks. Sad to say goodbye to ‘Cherry Trees’, and the hamlet with the friendly goat.
4 hours drive north east.
Hills and fields of sunflowers and corn giving way to pine forest and salt marshes.
St Jean de Monts and the lovely cottage ‘Inattendu’ – Michel and his wife and grand daughter greeted us and showed us round. A wee white cottage with everything we could want for a few days by the sea. Nautical and seaside bits and bobs adorn the house – pottery sailing boat on the dresser, old fishing net on the wall, pictures of boats and fantastic ‘anchor’ wallpaper. We’re certainly at the seaside!
A walk to the beach – 300m away – and what a lot of people. Bodies everywhere! And bicycles! And pedal carts. And loads of people. Too many people. Shock to the system from sleepy la Tour Blanche!
Dinner at the pizza place on rug corner.
Moules frites for Mrs DHG!
