The best of days (5,6,7)

The party at steves was great and ended with a big sing song. Molly was the star of the night with her numbers backed by steve. I told her to dump the loser with the guitar. Not normally one to participate in amateur nights, I was roped into doing the only song I can do that is someone elses and lit up the French night with a note perfect rendition of the power of love (you guess who’s version…). I also managed to neck at least a pint during it’s glorious 3 minutes.
Saturday was just as good as we sorted the finer points of modern camper living, casually having breakfast and lunch and walking over to steves, jumping in the pool with the kids and watching footy and England hammering the ozzies. Thanks to everyone for these great days we’ll never forget!
Sunday was dylan’s second birthday and we celebrated with the opening of presents and chocolate biscuits in what was now becoming our lovely family camper van. It was time to move on. Kate was being cooler and more laid back than me, which was great, but I feared a backlash (which never came). Our plan was to go to the lakes on the south west side of France. We fancied settling down for a few nights but on tinterweb, the big camps looked like butlins!
Kate suggested we just headed off in the right direction and took what was coming to us. I feared a backlash…..,
It was a long journey, kids were hot, no, very hot and tired but excited when we got to the first campsite that presented itself in mimizan. It was just what we wanted. Next to the lake but proper camping and beautifully well kept toilets and showers etc etc. As I bombed off to sort things at reception, Kate calmly suggested we just sat down for a beer then have a stroll around before we committed ourselves.
I feared a backlash.
The awning went up in two minutes flat with no crooked poles and we’d set up camp with minimum fuss and the lake looked beautiful.
