It's cold and its wet and all it took to make me wish I was back at La Grande Metairie was the arrival of a case of the beer that my dad and I enjoyed drinking in Brittany:
It takes me back to the week we spent on the campsite with my parents enjoying its 5 star facilities including the pool complex:
|Only the Brits wanted to swim on wet days!|
My children just had so much fun getting water confident jumping into the water that was deeper than they could stand up in:
Or just messing about in the rings we bought at the campsite shop:
There was even a chance to try out pony trekking:
The children learnt how to play table tennis:
And had a laugh with the evening entertainment:
Being set next to the town of Carnac we had to go and visit the Megaliths:
There was just so much else to explore from the campsite and I have already written about some of our early highlights in this postcard post. We tried out the local beaches:
Visited a chateau:
Saw an 18th century citadel:
And of course sampled the local beverages:
All in all a perfect three generation family holiday and I would love to head back there again... I'd better start saving up instead of browsing the Thomson Al Fresco web site and day dreaming... Vive la France et sante!
The beer featured in this post came from Beers of Europe.
