Day 83 – Ile d’Oleron

Glorious sunshine again today. Clare and the boys made pancakes for breakfast, which took up most of the morning.

I took the boys and Meg for a cycle ride, there’s a track which runs through the forest parallel to the beach. After lunch Ben and I went shopping for ice cream, and bought a pack of lemon and raspberry sorbets in sugar cones – delicious. We then went swimming in the lagoon, which was freezing.

While washing up after dinner I was called granddad by a drunk Brummie. Being older parents, we get this a lot, perhaps me more than Clare. People usually apologise when they learn of their mistake. The Brummie just looked questioningly at his glass of wine.
