|Pretty little coastal town Cancale|
Wow, this summer is fast. Only 1 1/2 weeks until school goes back. We arrived home from France last Monday (after a 700 mile, 15 hour drive from a campsite in Versaille – not much fun but we made it). We had a wonderful holiday. The first week we camped with lots of friends at John’s best friend’s sister’s small farm, not far from St Malo. We all had a lot of fun pottering, beaching and lots of late night eating, drinking and chatting. All outside – we only ever ventured inside to prep food or shower! On the last night 35 adults sat down to a home-cooked hog roast…..we didn’t get round to a total head count of the children!

|Oyster sellers, on the promenade, for which Cancale is famous|
|Beautiful hidden beach near Cancale – local knowledge is very handy|
|Mont St Michel – very very busy, but very very impressive|
|Mont St Michel’s own Diagon Alley|
|Sanxay – Gallo-Roman site with well preserved theatre, bath house complex and temple|

So, now my thoughts are beginning to turn to getting organised for school. We have friends and family visiting and staying over the next week and kid’s friends over to play too. It will be busy but I want to make the most of our time before we get back into the everyday bustle. I’ll try and gently ease myself back into blogging and blog reading and commenting – apologies to all you lovely people out there, I have pretty much dropped out of the blog world, I haven’t forgotten you, just been taking a wee breather! I hope your summer is going well and I will be in touch soon!
