We crossed Dover-Calais on the Saturday and drove down the coast of France to St Valery, where we spent the first night, it teamed with rain and we thought great start to the holiday. The next day we kept heading South to where we spent a week, it was near St. Malo at an amazing park/resort . We camped the whole time and it was fantastic. As we headed South the weather got better and better. We camped with canvas holidays and they have the tents already set up and equiped, a great option when we don’t have any equipment here.This would definitely be somewhere that we would visit annually if we lived here.When we picked it ,I thought it had heaps to do, but it was way better than what I had read. Another surprise was, that with the kids club ,they had sourced in another company to organise activities and organise the Hoopi Club (thename of the kids club),they were amazing and the kids got to do so many things that they will probably not have the chance to again. I think Gwynfor and I had the most time alone together for ages, sometimes we would go to the bar sometimes we would just chill out and read.It was a fantastic week, because we camped the kids would all play out in the evening and we met so many great families that we will stay in touch with, the kids are emailing some kids that they met as well.
our tent, quite roomy really,beds very comfy.
Water walker,was a crack up to watch. They looked like hamsters running in a wheel. Harder than it looks there is nowhere to lean on ,to stabilise.
The sea scooter was really cool to scoot around on, Jack and Aislin couldn’t do this one as you had to be 9 and over.
The canoes was funny to watch, you didn’t have to be there but I enjoyed watching them, enjoy themselves and having so much fun. They had teams within the canoe and they had to play these tricky games, you could hear them chanting and yelling all over the park. They happen to be filming and shooting for the new catalogue for 2009, so they will be in the interenet video and in the catalogue, we had to sign forms to say that their images could be used for Canvas holidays.
Ella being Ella ,was a bit of a worry wart on the horse but Ais was very relaxed and really enjoyed her ride on Blue Eyes.
There was a couple of lakes in the resort. Some were for fishing but this one was near the pub, with nice tables and chairs to sit and relax by with a lovely view. The pedolas were also there and the kids just had to have a go,so Gwynfor and I sat and watched over a nice cold beer. Ahhh! the serenity.
