|The field is now seeded and the first grass shoots can be seen!|
One of the advantages of Les Deux Platanes is the central location in France, you can reach the majority of places within three hours and the West coast of France is no exception. The Gironde and the coast from La Rochelle is beautiful throughout the year so we decided to have a weekend at Chatellalion Plage which is just south of La Rochelle.
The MG was rolled out, dusted off, the picnic bag checked and we were soon on the virtually vehicle free roads to the west coast. Within 3hrs we had arrived at our Chambre D'hotes for the weekend and the exploring began.
|The same man minutes later trying to light the disposable barbecue - looking at it helps apparently.|
|Its 10.30am and 25C , the beach is practically empty so we had a coffee in a promenade cafe.|
