En vacance but not in Provence! Having travelled from Applecross to the Dordogne (in several days I hasten to add). We took two days to get to London where we spent a restful day before catching the ferry and travelling to Orleans (S of paris). Unfortunately, the campsite we had planned to stay at was shut fro refurbishment and a last minute dash around the countryside found us at Parc de les Alicourt a 4* centre parcs type affair. Never again. We left there pretty sharpish, it was completely inundated with Dutch and parisian 'campers' who wanted bars and discos with gangs of (well-behaved bu noisy) teenagers roaming the site :-(
Serendipity in the form of an unscheduled visit to Argenton-sur-Creuse (because we missed the turning for Orleans and couldn't be bothered to look for an alternative route) and the first campsite we saw was a quiet, shady and grassy 3* campsite where we spent a couple of nights. The tipi was great; however, I do not remember camping including a laptop (Horton hears a who) and popcorn at night. Still, it was good!

Then a drive to the Dordogne where the temperature that met us was 35.5 F! The first thing we did when we arrived was got into our swimming gear and dived into the swiming pool.

See the photos in the web album.

I'll be uploading more pictures as we go.


Bon Vacances
