18th. April 2017


From Figueras we headed for Toulouse, a city I now realise we have never visited before. The campsite is close to a water park where we watch water skiers being dragged round by zip wires with varying degrees of success, attempting to avoid buoys and tackle ramps. Most entertaining. Odd campsite opposite Gypsy campsite, bur security is visible and tight. Discover that there are 500kms+ of cycle paths, like Bordeaux, so make note to return here and spend a few days sometime.

Aire in Jonzac. Pretty little town and we cycle to Dave's Gite. No entrance for motorhome so will need to rethink plans for summer. Weather glorious.

Ste. Maure de Touraine. Aire in town centre south of Tours very handy.

Intend stopping at CampingCarParks site in Dreux as I have a card with €20 credit which has been sitting there for 2 years. Find site without problem but it is on industrial estate and we are only ones there. Manage to open barriers with card ok so that works, and ir is ok, new, electric points etc but lonely. By 5pm, nobody else has arrived and the industrial estate has emptied. Although there is a 6ft wire fence around us it doesn't feel good so find campsitea few miles away and head there. On checking my account later, we have been charged €5 for parking which was fair enough.

Had intended stopping at Castels site in Guines, outside Calais but decide to go to Calais aire as we paid for a campsite last night. Discover rumour about the aire being demolished is correct and that it is in the process of being moved closer to Sangattte. It is still a building site but the barriers are in place and require €10 but no hook ups. As it is now too far out of town to walk to a restaurant we head back to Guines where the campsite has a nice restaurant and have a jolly good meal. The new aire will be ok in the future as it will be much quieter and is only 2 miles from the Tunnel terminal.

To Fleet and 3 days at the Little Bramshot Farm CL whilst we visit J&K.
15-17/04/17 Chez William for the Easter Weekend and home on 18th.

 Great trip
