Day 2

We decided to head north to Arcachon instead of going to Lourdes.  En route usual coffee stops and wee breaks!

Arrived at the a chosen site “Le Coq Hardin”.  Mmmmm.

No beer on this table…

Sooty finally gets his tent up after twitting about.

Hardy biker and all pleased with himself after putting up his tent.  Which, I might add, is exactly the same as mine.  Copy cat.

The French know how to lay on a fish stall at the local Intermarche.  Unreal.  50 Euro later we had our food.  Still had to cook it but hey.

19 degrees today.  Yey.  We may stop another day.  Not sure yet.  Depends how much beer we drink I guess.  Seriously there’s lots to see round here so we are going to take a ride out tomorrow and then decide.  La’ers…

Arette – free of charge

First campsite.  Camping Arette apparently.  Tonights concoction is chicken with some slurp of some kind.  One big bowl of mushed up veg.  Great practice for when we have no teeth.

The campsite was full of mod cons.  Well, cons anyway.

Full swing.  This is a picture of professionals at work.  Live and learn people, live and learn.

This is Taylux after a boiling shower.  I didn’t tell him what he looked like!  Lobster face.

Sooty waxing lyrical about something or other.  Nobody was listening by this time anyway.



Packing up and time to leave.  I was first ’cause I was up early of course.



The owner was nowhere in sight.  Some builders told us he had gone into hospital.  So we left a note saying we had stayed a night and my phone number.  Eh?  Why mine?  Oh well.  Showers were crap anyway.


Packing has started!

This is Mick’s idea of packing for the Tricolore Tour.  Ho ho.

Tricolore Tour is so called because :

  1. We are going to France
  2. There are three of us

Bike cleaned, adventure bits now almost all fitted, new textile suit ordered. Passport, tickets, money.  Passport, tickets, money.  What time is it?  7 weeks to go.
