Week 135

Friday 2nd October 2020 to Thursday 8th October 2020

With this sodding virus it’s been a very long 7 months back in the UK but there is light at the end of the tunnel…

we’re finally setting off for Portugal 😀

I  am so excited!!!

We decided to give the Newhaven to Dieppe ferry a go

The tail end of Storm Alex was still hanging around and it was a bit of a rough 4 hour crossing and I have to report that Julie’s breakfast didn’t make it to France!

The noises from the toilets were ungodly

We were planning to go to Honfluer for a couple of nights but I decided it was far too windy to use the Pont de Normandie so we headed for Etretat.

A stormy Etretat

Because the weather was so wet in Normandy we decided to scrap the trip to Honfluer completely and headed south to Tours.

Cfor loves to get out and about especially if there is a hedge

The campsite at Tours was okay. The house next door was for sale

!!!

We took a trip into the town centre on Zippy and when I parked it on a pavement I was worried about getting a ticket but that was just the paranoia left over from the UK, in France the local maires actually want you to visit his beautiful towns.

Tours itself is a nice little town.

Like most French towns it’s heavily pedestrianised and the vieux town is great.

Tomorrow we are travelling to Bordeaux.

In other news Lily has arrived back home after a couple of years swanning around Australia…
