"Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside.........."

.......and I bet you will all be singing that song now LOL!

Warning, holiday photos again, picture heavy and no sewing!     Early September the weather was lovely so we decided to go off again (such a hard life LOL).   First we went to Sam's favourite place, St Palais in Charente Maritime



How I wish my legs were really that long!


Then on to ile d'Oleron, a small island just off the coast, but it was so busy we only stayed a couple of nights, seems everyone else with a motorhome thought it would be a good idea to be there!  We watched these school children having a sailing lesson, what a lovely way to spend a  morning. The boat towed them to one end of the lake and then they had great fun sailing back (or going round in circles LOL).



How about this for a view, we had our lunch here one day right on the side of the Dordogne river.



Our last camp site was across the river from the town of Limeuil, from the camp site we could walk down to the river 


Sam enjoyed his paddle in the river!



On our way home we stopped at a little town called les Eyzies-de-Tayac.  There was a market on so stopped to have a look around.  


How about one of these for a Des-Res!!




It was a lovely little town and somewhere we will definitely be going back to, we didn't have enough time to have a good look around.  I did a bit of research when we got home and this town dates back to Prehistoric times with cave dwellings, can't wait to go back and have a good look around.

If you have got this far, well done, you deserve a medal!  If the weather stays nice in October we may just sneak another week away before the winter sets in again.    

Just one more picture of Sam enjoying his holidays .....


Hugs Linda and Sam

Hi Linda, you were on my mind the last few days so I wanted to pop in and say I hope all is well with you and yours (furry kid included), and wish you a very Merry Christmas. Big Hugs coming your way....
