Went away last weekend in our new toy –
to the site and hooked up, ready to begin
First was to get the caravan level
as we’d already discovered that the fridge doesn’t work unless level! What, no chilled white wine?! Not quite so important to check the level of the glass though – unless to guard against spillage.
Next was to get the awning up –
no instructions, and the first time we’d tried it – very much trial and error. But we got there and just in time for the apero !!
So, all sorted, and ready for our first night –
Just one last thing before bed –
coming in dark, and Marjory not willing to use the shelter of the hedge, or the bucket (with lid!!); or even to walk the 50 metres across the site to the bloc sanitaire; we had to get to grips with the chemical toilet
Always useful to read the instructions, just to check we’ve got it right
OK, so we were only 55km down the road at Agon-Coutainville; but it was a good 4 day break, and we were able to do something that we’ve not managed to do for a good few years now – be tourists. Coming up – some of the things we found around Agon-Coutainville. But we leave you with the site we stayed at – a lovely, quiet, family-run site – mostly mobile homes, but ten pitches for tents/touring caravans; showers, sanitary block, washing machine; some small recreational areas, but overall a good place to get away, be quiet and unwind.
