Day #4 ‘Once upon a time we had air conditioning’

This morning we enjoyed breakfast in the van before heading off again. The drive towards Bordeaux was quite lovely. We found a great MASSIVE truck stop about half way, where we stopped for lunch. I made hot dogs in the van + coffee and hot chololate while Matt, Zane, Darian and Storm went for a walk in the play park at the stop. We all then sat under a lovely tree next to the play park and enjoyed our hot dogs and bevs. Later on in the day we found another great stop to stretch our legs – it even had a great adventure playground of sorts attached to it.

Once we got near Bordeaux we looked around Andernos Les Bains (on the West coast) for a caravan park with a pool . It was a whopping 36 degrees upwards today. Just as we pulled into the caravan park our air-con decided to breath it’s last breath… not good when we are in the middle of a hot area…mmm

In Andertons Les Bains was a lovely shopping area that runs alongside a glorious pier. We went for a sunset stroll as we looked for a pair of James Bond Pants for Matt (the rules here in France say ‘no swim shorts’). The boys dangled their legs in the water near the pier before we headed back to the van for dinner and sleep. A great Day!
