In Lac D’Orient (literally)

It’s really rather lovely here. A huge lake, pretty campsite and a dog friendly bar. 

Staying in Albert in the Somme was great though. The town was perfectly positioned for Elaine and P to cycle around the key memorials and many smaller cemeteries littered inbetween. She thinks she’s mastered collage so hopefully… The Newfoundland Memorial, Thiepval, Lochnagar Crater and Vimy Ridge..

And more of my fabulous swimming (luckily not in video as it actually involves much high speed leg flapping)

  1. Dear Doz,
    Bonjour (or should I say Bonsoir, seeing as I’m typing at 09:15pm😉) .
    The photos you are posting (with help from Elaine) are stunning! The ones of you in the lake are striking due to the heavy sky in the background. They’d make a great picture for your wall when you get home, I reckon.
    I’m glad you made it to France with the minimum of fuss; you are very brave going under the sea.
    I’ve spent the day getting my car MOT ready, as it’s due tomorrow (gulps!). Fingers crossed for a pass, then (like you) I’ll be back on the road, but not going as far as you😉.
    Are you going to Dijon? That was my first ever destination in France, way back in 2005; I went there to visit my friend Annie who was studying. I loved the food and the bars, and we even managed to get away from a restaurant without paying for a bottle of wine! However, it was rosé and the French don’t much care for it, so maybe it was their intention not to charge😂.
    As usual, there’s not much going on here; the hounds are very well, and we’re getting plenty of walks.
    Thanks for another brilliant post, and I shall look forward to your next one.
    Love from Jimmy, Nelly, and Daisy. Xxx

    • Hi guys, thanks for the messages, we love reading them as it’s like having a penpal! The lake was stunning eh, we didn’t notice the sky until we looked at the photos but it did soon rain (heavily) All the photos are snapped on Elaine’s phone but we have some fab ones. Writing a blog also means we get to keep our travel diary. Did your car pass? Haha to Dijon. We’re not going but aren’t far away now as in a national park to the left. Love to the girls. X

      • Hi, Doz!
        Sadly the car didn’t pass, and she has to go back for a brake check tomorrow morning. Something has “sheared off” the right brake pad. I sense money gushing from my account any moment😐. Still, things could be worse; it’s a hot, sunny day, and the girls and I went for a long walk and a paddle in the beck (I didn’t paddle😂).
        Looking forward to your next update.
        Love,
        Jimmy and the girls. Xxx
