Back in France
This story happened on: 05/06/2017
We’ve not been back to France in our motorhome since Cath took ill in April 2016. A year into her treatment, Cath persuaded her ‘Specialist’ to let her extend one of her test dates to six weeks instead of four. Three days later, armed with an extra stash of pills and anti-biotics, we sailed for France.
Our first overnight stop was at the ever-delightful municipal site at Val de Vesle, just south of Reims.
Our second stop was at Beaune.
We were heading for a ‘holiday camp’ near Ruoms in the Ardeche, where we met up with our grandsons(and their mum & dad!) who were having a long weekend in a mobilhome. We had a great time together despite Cath not being allowed to use public swimming pools. ( How do the French turn a Thursday holiday into a 4 day break?)
We parted, they to their home in the Alps, and us to a surprise rendezvous with our chums from Suffolk, Steve and Kitty, at a site in St Remy de Provence. Lots of catch up and a trip into town for lunch.
Our next stop was Cavalaire sur Mer and Camping de la Baie: one of our favourites- it’s our 10th time here.
It’s a fairly level walk to the promenade and the port, so Cath can manage taking her time. Her treatment and her condition mean that she has to stay covered and avoid the hot sun. She can manage a paddle though and an ice cream.
Last night we had a surprise when our chums from Yorkshire, Jeanne and Graham, turned up for a few nights on their way to Port Grimaud.
We move on 13Km on Thursday to our all-time favourite site at Saint Clair where Cath hopes to have a ‘float’ in the sea.
