Day 407 – Friday 19th April 2019
Another sunny day. Into St Tropez after lunch.
Day 408 – Saturday 20th April 2019
A sunny if windy day.
It’s Easter weekend and there was about a two mile tailback of traffic into the town. It didn’t hold us up on Zippy but it’s amazing that a town as small as St Tropez has enough car parking space to accommodate that many visitors. No way would a small English town be able to handle that much traffic; most local councils in England can’t even pick up the litter let alone sort out their parking.
All marketed out it was on to Le Bou-Bou in Grimaud for Julie’s birthday lunch.
Le Bou-bou is in a beautiful location but the service leaves a lot to be desired; despite coming back to check our order they got my drink wrong and my chips never arrived. The food that I did get though was great 😀
Later in the afternoon I went for a walk along the beach towards Sainte-Maxime and stumbled across a little nudist beach! They should have warning signs up; someone as sensitive as myself should not have to witness things like that!
Day 409 – Sunday 21st April 2019
An overcast day. I was going to go into town and sketch the harbour front but my back has been bad for days and riding Zippy makes it worse so I spent the day slouched in the van. I did do a bit of drawing though…
Day 410 – Monday 22nd April 2019
A sunny day but it’s blowing a bloody gale. My back is a lot better. Went for a walk along the beach in the morning and a spin on Zippy in the afternoon.
Finished watching season 4 of Game of Thrones.
Day 411 – Tuesday 23rd April 2019
Woke up to rain. The morning dragged and I was thinking about my lunch by 10am.
Went for a walk along the beach in the rain.
Spent the afternoon making up a To Do list for when we are back in the UK. God, it’s 3 pages long 🙁 Amongst all the grind of sorting out my house & tidying up the garden, getting MOTs and other mind numbing chores I’m hoping to walk up Ben Nevis, weather permitting of course 😀
Day 412 – Wednesday 24th April 2019
Woke up to heavy rain and it chucked it down till 3pm 🙁
With no campsite cats around to scare him Cfor has become very nocturnal….
Day 413 – Thursday 25th April 2019
A cold and overcast day. Thank god the forecast is for the sunshine to return tomorrow. Had a lazy day.
