Day 19, 22nd August Marseillan-Plage still
22.08.2012 - 22.08.2012 34 °C
A lay in, ie not the crack of dawn and the site has grown on us. Amazing what a full stomach and sleep can do to your view point.
This pitch is quite grassy compared to others around the site. Sandy pitches are the worst. If it was just us maybe it would be not so bad as we take our flip flops off but Bodhi can't do that. So with in seconds of him entering you have what feels like half the sites sand and grit underfoot. Plus a good compliment of dog hair to round it off.
With that in mind we pay for another day here and make plans to move inward in the hope to bag a grassy pitch. he toilets and showers are clean and modern and the whole site seems relaxed.
Today is a day to rest and get ourselves up together for the last ten days or so of our trip. Washing is the main goal. A cool morning allows us the rare opportunity to all go for a swim in the pool and leave Bodhi behind. Quickly we get the wash loads going and head for the pool only to be turned away as Dan and Ethan are wearing swimming shorts and only speedos or trunks are allowed due to hygiene reasons. Crud. Feeling our time disappearing we make a mad dash for the beach and go for our first and only dip in the Med for this trip. Refreshed we race out to collect our laundry.
Hot dogs for lunch and potatoes beans cheese and cold meats for tea see's another cheap day for eating that puts us back on track financially. We spend some time plotting our last few days and come with what we hope will be a few relaxing longer stays before home. Can't believe we are plotting our route home already.
Eventually I get to speak to Antony and hear all about Edwards Spider man Antics that have landed him in A & E. Oh dear Edward, hope your wrist is feeling better, keep it on those pillows! We also got to hear your message this morning. So Hi to Sarah and Lucas as well.
Chatted to mum. They are Baking in Portugal. forty five degrees! Bodhi would not have liked that. Under the trees and out of sun we are only about thirty two. With a slight breeze as well. Tomorrow they fly home. Already the 23rd! To be honest we have totally lost track of the day, date and even time. We are in full holiday mode and only think of eating when we are hungry, go to bed when tired and awake when rested. Oh yeah.
Early bed as we have a long drive tomorrow up towards Lyon.
