We've had alovely day - only marred at the end by not grasping the need for screw on males and push on females to fix our newly leaky hose-reel connectors. What he doesn't know about watering would fill an encyclopedia!
Anyway, we found somewhere to park - afirst at La Tranche! - and then strolled along the sea front to the marine brocante where there were all sorts of fishing rods, boat bits, marine clothing and, oddly enough given we were right on teh waters edge, burgers or andouillets with frites. We passed. Strolled back again the other way and found a lovely fishy restaurant with a covered terrace right on teh beach edge. Good views of La Rochelle and the Ile de Ré and good food.
Then we found the centre and did a bit of shopping. We finally have a Beware the Labrador for the gate and a Beware the Labradoodle sign which was the nearest we could get to a Rasta who we think is a Wheaten terrier but is often mistaken for a Labradoodle. No Beware Pussies! A floaty cotton top and pants for me and some new sandals then home via the garden shop.
Just having a slimline tonic for the cramps and then off to water after applying more fly repellent spray. They don't go anywhere near OH for some reason. We have clouds, at last, but they're keeping their H2O to themselves for now.
Good luck to anyone planning or attending gala days and village fêtes and outdoor concerts.
