After a long drive supper in the local restaurant.. no cooking.. To tired We’ve been here before Taverna St Jacque .. lovely food but expensive …

Off this morning to the highest Sand Dune in Europe

Now that’s a climb and we didn’t do it the easy way Oh No .. Straight up not the staircase .. One foot forwards and two back .. Very soft sand and shoeless . I made it after lots of stops …The Driver was patience personified having to wait for me every few feet but I made it to the top šŸ¤Ŗ

We are now on an aire in Arcachon and had the thought of going to Bourdeaux but can’t find any decent parking for Hetty so keeping to the coast for our next stop

The Driver love watching other people park their Motorhomes and has written a little aside for you

The Dance of the Motorhomeā€™s

“By the Driver”

I have been observing the antics of some Motorhomeā€™s in this trip and it has not failed to amuse me.

1 . Motorhome turns up picks a spot

2 . Levellers used to keep beer/wine from spilling

3. Satellite dish deployed scanning for a signal(wir wir wir)

4. No signal so Motorhome drives to another location with wife holding wine/beer glasses

5. Attempt to get a signal on satdish after levelling again

6 Repeat from item 4 until a satdish lock is achieved or until run out of locations to park.

These antics become even more fun an a camp site as the owner or wife have to go to the office for another pitch and even more fun if the Motorhome is huge.
