as always we were early:)

Our last day in Fecamp.

It is still very windy. I get our bread. The baker is pointing at the black clouds that are rolling in, and making oh-oo noises. After breakfast a German family in a VW bus that survived from end 60s change from a very small place to no. 101. They borrowed the bus and are at their first stop. They are raising the tent in real teamwork. I go inside as it starts raining. The wind gets fiercer and progress stops where the lines should be set.

I see them hanging at the frame, and after a while I can’t take it anymore. I get out and ask what to do next. “we don’t know, we are holding the frame and wait till the storm is over.”

In Normandy that can take two days, so we start with the lines, then with the pins.

3 different chocolat nuts

But it is a rocky land, and even heavy pins bend, so we put a line through the holes and give that some tension, and that works. Whatever the rain, the tent stands. Unbelievable, the rain stops, the family goes out without the father, and I have to drink beer:)

Caroline and I go and visit the chocolat museum. Nothing what a Discovery documentary cannot tell you, but here we are in a chocolat factory, and the smell adds a lot to the impressions. It is very static, with lots of text, but they try to make it a positive exhibition.

On our way back we visit the point opposite our camping again, but this time with camera.

When I get home, the family has turned the tent (good idea) and I help with pulling the lines:) because it starts raining again. Then more beer.

Tonight we eat out at la Filibuste, a restaurant and pizzeria. I cannot finish my 4 cheeses pizza, this has not ever ever happened (normally I eat the leftovers too), must be the storm.

The caravan is prepared for the trip, only waiting for the finishing touch tomorrow.
