Been out all day cos Harry needed new brakes on all 4 wheels - 700€ ouch!
Decided we'd head a a bit further north and explore St Gilles-Croix-de-Vie which is the biggest sardine port in France and also a has long, sandy beaches so is heaving in summer and inaccessible to the casual passer-by. Had lunch at a fish restaurant I wanted to try and it was delicious but would have been so much nicer if I hadn't been eaten myself in the night and wasn't itchy in places you can't scratch in public - broken toe, under bra, inside bra, back, thigh, back of knees.......... Spent ages in the loo dabbing anti itch cream everywhere.
Went for a stroll round the old port and the yacht basin and found 2 lovely churches, one Roman and one Gothic, but nothing else of interest to us.
As the car wasn't quite ready after all that we popped into a handy garden centre and bought some more MPC for soil conditioning and some carex for finishing my winter pots of red and white cyclamen, a ceratostigma which I could never grow in the old garden and a rich, lilac Michaelmas daisy.
Hosta - I hope the Gambia is calmer this time. FG - well done for persevering. Dove - sitting aroun is very bad for muscles and general stamina. Still not back to where I was pre broken toe. It still hurts so I may mention it to the doc.
