Awaycation France - Day 14


Up early. We need to be away early today. We have a long way to go and we can't be late getting to the vets's in Abbeville for Reggie's check over and worming and of course get his paperwork completed. The appointment is 3pm.


Finally arrive at the British Normandy Memorial at Vers Sur Mer. This new memorial is absolutely fantastic. Memorial website.


It was so hot and there was little shade we went from tree to tree so that Reggie could walk on the grass and not the hot tarmac or concrete.


We decided to take the toll motorways to Abbeville. This meant A13 and A29.

Our former nemesis appeared. The Pont de Normandie! The last time we crossed it was on the GS and the wind was so strong it felt like we had two flat tyres as we weaved across the width of the roadway!!


Much better today. Maybe not worth the €6.50 toll. At least Emovis bipped again.

We had a couple of stops at services. Both really for Reggie's pee break and a chance to stretch all our legs. I bought coffee.

The Ohrex Satnav took us right to the door of the vet's in Place Clemenceau. It's a blue parking zone and we didn't have one. As we were early Claire went in to see if the could sort Reggie earlier. They could and lent us a blue clock for the windscreen. With that sorted we were off again about an hour later.

We stopped at the Carrefour on the outskirts of St Valéry. As well as stuff for dinner I invested in a windscreen wiper sponge and squeegee and a blue parking clock!

The campsite at Chateau de Drancourt is another large one. Not as noisy as Sandaya Grande Côte, and no sand to bog Suki down. Still ridiculously hot though. I think It had a touch of sun stroke! I felt really rough and needed a lie down in the van.


Dinner was bread and some cooked meat. It was still very warm when we set up the bed and it had long gone 11pm when I took Reggie for his final pee.
