So we showered and glammed-up and did a 15 minute walk through the fields to Chequers where Dave managed a steak and I had the salmon fish cakes (which I really enjoyed ). Bit ‘spit-and-sawdust” and not fantastic service but an enjoyable couple of hours and a lovely photie of the moon rising on our return….
Also It’s the largest and first campsite that I’ve ever stayed on where they actively encourage camp fires 🔥 so it was nice walking through the fields with fires dotted all over the place…
Caught up on Corro, had a cup of tea & a Viennese Whirl (Dave had a whiskey 🥃 ) and watched the first episode of The Fall on Netflix – which has Gillian Anderson trying to solve a serial killer case – Jamie Dorman (Christian Grey from 50 Shades) as the nutter – I’m hooked !!!
Full English x 2 (yum) and now taking in the air on deck. Booked into the Cinema at 3:30pm for Baby Driver. Great ship 🚢 – little cruise liner – lots going on including a Sleeping Beauty Panto this afternoon !!! Xxx
So sat in one of main drags opposite a little art market in front of the city wall – at Maison Hector.
Dave ordered a beer and I ordered 50cl of Breton Cidre – and this little ceramic jug and a matching tea cup turned up !!! Also 5 (was 6 but the waitress dropped one 😂) what looked like mini Yorkshire Puddings and some paste. It was like tuna mayo – yum !!!
Dave then ordered Moules Roquefort & Frites and I had a galette – which is basically a savoury pancake – and my filling was jambon, champignons & fromage with the customary “a Egg” in the centre – see below. I also had frites 🍟 – and it was all delicious 😋
Then I had an Earl Grey (they don’t seem to do English Breakfast Tea) and they served it in the cutest little cast iron kettle – see below…
Left the place STUFFED and was on a mission to get a little ceramic pitcher and 2 matching teacups – mission accomplished (no piccie as alll wrapped up)… xxx
So we packed up and left Les Madieres campsite and – as we leave from St Malo on Friday – headed east again. En-route we stopped for supplies at a supermarche and Dave took a photie of the public washer and dryer in the car park – see below !!!
As we were driving we also came across a small town (Marignon) but with a MASSIVE market – on seemingly every street !
As it was around lunchtime it was starting to pack up but we had a quick bib around – and I got a lovely teal-coloured biker jacket – see piccie – bargain 25 euros !!!
The initial campsite we drove to was full (but Dave was relieved as it was full of kids !!!) – we tried another – Le Pont Laurin – and they had space, it’s much nicer & quieter (must be getting old) and almost half-price !!!
Dave set up the canopy, table, chairs, etc. then had a little snooze while I knocked up tea and had a little sit in the sun with a wine (well I AM still on holiday !!!)
We had tea and went back to soak up the last few rays but Dave likes the shade – see his ingenious sun-shade – a towel pegged to the canopy 😂 Xxx
That’s it for now campers – more tomorrow when we bib off on The Duke to St Malo for more fun & frolicks !!!
