Oh, for the open road – and memories.

Oh, for the open road – and memories.

Two years ago today we stayed on this Aire.
Fresh water, waste disposal, EHU and Wifi included in the price.
Baguette machine just outside the site.

Has anyone else stopped here ?


For Videos of the Aires we've used, Eurotunnel journeys and many other more obscure Videos have a look at - www.youtube.com/user/KeithChesterfield

Not stopped on the Aire, but we SHOULD have been on the ferry to Santander last Tuesday for a 5 week trip along the North coast.
At least I am very happy to say I am around to whinge about not being able to go. There are 27,000 who cannot do that now thanks to Covid.

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if like me, it’s in a caravan!)
I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Of course it does

A very special lady to you and I’m sure to many

103 is a celebratory age, but age doesn’t count when you lose someone special

My sympathy at your loss

So sorry to hear that Matchlock. How marvellous to make 103! But it doesn't matter how much you might be prepared for it, yes, it does still hurt.

What a blessing to have a Mum around for so long. And what a grand age. A life well lived I'm sure. My Mum died when she was just 61. How often Ive missed her in the past 40 years. You'll miss yours too - wonder how she is, think you'd like to tell her something and then remember she's not here any more. I share your sadness!

I have already survived the age my Mum died by 3 years, that was 44 years ago and I still see her in my mirror and hear her in things I say.
You´ll probably always miss her Flint.

I hope to be visiting some of the places you have been Keith when we are able to move again.
I wonder if I should have one of those cameras in my van to remind me of places like you do.
I just wonder if I will be able to stay away for weeks on end without wanting to come home.
One thing is sure, I won´t have any trouble finding places to go or stay with all the experience on the forum.

I'm Jan
We learn something new every day.

Sad news, Barry. And even sadder in these awful times when funerals are controlled due to Covid 19.

Keith, no, not that aire but we are looking forward to exploring again sometime.

I stayed in a campsite in this resort peak season. Packed to gills with French families. Kids running around till midnight then whining all morning because they hadnt had enough sleep. Then off to the pool when maman and papa got their ducks in a row. Then at last a bit of peace. I hate French campsite bathrooms in season. Muddy 'swimming pools' and unflushed toilets. Parents off duty!
