I assume, Sandra, that all the immigrants are no longer prowling the car park? The last time we were there it made us too uncomfortable to stay

Not a one pat

And we’ve never seen them there

Mind we’ve only spent the night there 4/ 5 times

But we will go again on the return trip

So close to the tunnel

Unless you arrive in the dark, become disorientated

And trust a sat nav which is equally disorientated

And does a tour of Calais

this site is immaculate

And I mean immaculate

It’s an ACSi site , remember to add taxes 1 ,25 € per person per day

Shop, cafe open FSSunday off season , a frite shop1/4 mile , the town I mile along the lake by cycle path

Some photos tomorrow

And a bike shop that hires bikes and three wheelers

Will sell the 2 year old electric three wheelers 1/2 price , two years old I,500 €

But we need to carry to buy

But Monday we may hire

That sounds good Sandra. You can try one out at least. Sounds like a good place to rest a while.

Tomorrow we move next to the lake

Where albertcan run with the hound quicker of the site around the lake

And Just in case night time necessities

Means a middle of the night trip

A hound emergency here

Totally pristine

Mowed lawn next to our hard standing

But I guess we could wash it off

Do none of you have a hound who needs occasionally

A desperate need for the toilet

In the middle of the night

It’s yet another problem

Which comes to pass

We pick up everything in bags , were big on leaving no mess

But if things go wrong

And we can’t pick up loose bowels

Then what

Wash it away with lots of water, Sandra. Hose would be best of course. If not pickup what you can and then slosh lots of water.

Have had GSD's with their dicky tummies before (I know Shadow has extra problems) so feel for you. The times I came down to a cow pat, on the kitchen floor, do not bear mentioning

You need a little shovel Sandra, shovel up what you can into the bag, then a bucket of water (out of the lake) over what remains.

When we first had Shade he had runny eyes that stained the fur under his eyes, he also had very loose motions, we discovered he had a food allergy. The vet recommended Royal Canine Sensitive, very expensive, but it did the trick clearing up both problems. He had that food until his last day.

We had a doggy with a dicky tummy last weekend on a grass pitch, a few buckets of water sorted it, mind you we've got a patterdale not a GSD so size matters

Before you criticise someone walk a mile in their shoes, that way you are a mile away and have their shoes too

We’ve moved next to lake

Alone

The hound can now walk in long grass on the verges of the lake

The bike path along side

So he’s of now for a run with the bike

We’ve booked two more days

Both of us seem tired

We need to chill a while

But as campsites go

This is great , immaculately clean, fabulous showers , hot hot water , a swimming pool, outdoor and I suspect heated

A Kil/ to the town a doddle on a bike for Albert

And the whole campsite is alive with bikes

We aren’t to bothered about campsites

But we need to chill at the moment

So I’m gazing at the lake
