Our first week was up and down like an emotional rollercoaster with higlights and disasters. We had a minor accident with a gatepost which turned into a nightmare to repair and a blessing in disguise because we had to stay put and rest.
On Tuesday we visited The Walrus (aka Paul) at his mill. It was a long drive over to Lalleu but well worth it. The mill is very remote and still needs work. Walrus has loads of problems but he has a good bolt hole to escape to. A great visit and photos to follow.
We are now in The Vendee on a small farm campsite outside Les Sables. Getting onto the pitch proved to be another nightmare. The ground was so rough and the turning space so small that the whole caravan and car nearly tipped over with Andy in it.
What else can go wrong? Camping in France is proving to be more challenging and stressful than our adventure Africa!
Tonight we ‘re meeting up with Alain and Cath. Looking forward to that.
