Awaycation France - Day 9

Today we packed up and were off around 1030am. We had been up earlier with Reggie and his comfort breaks and then his breakfast.

The only plan today to head for the Grande Côte Campsite. As we crossed the Charente near Rochefort to the right we saw the transporter bridge.


I had set a POI at the U-boat pens in La Rochelle but when we got there we couldn't find how to get in. So we aborted and went to Lidl to get lunch.

This was eaten in an Aire formed by the old road being bypassed. We squeezed Suki into some shade. Another stop at a McDonald's for coffee and we arrived at the site about 4pm.

The site is vast. More holiday camp than campsite! We found our pitch which meant reversing in and avoiding trees. Don't fancy doing that too often.


The facilities are good. The bar reasonable and we had a refreshing Kronenbourg blonde to relax. Dinner tonight will be a loaf we bought in Lidl and the cheese etc we already have. We do have a tin of cassoulet from last week as well.


After dinner we had a walk through the campsite to the beach. Reggie enjoyed a paddle.


That's about it.
