Rose tinted glasses

Wednesday 08 August 2007 It’s wet, worse than that, it’s cold – the rain has continued all night and looks to have set in for the day. Along the row of chalets you can see expectant faces checking for any sign of improvement. In our accommodation SAD has set in and we (the adults anyway) decide that we will never return to France. The wet weather contingency plan involves a trip to the aquarium in Canet town and we cannot park in our normal car park. Probably because everyone else in the South of France is doing the same. We finally manage to find a space in a car park at the other end of the resort. As we walk in the weather is clearing and we pass another bike hire shop. The aquarium killed an hour – it was so busy it seemed like the fish were looking at us. It was ok but nothing compared to others we have been to. It didn’t have the usual French feature where the Café serves ‘the cast’. I was rather looking forward to grilled sardines. The sun is out!! We walk up the prom and into the bike hire shop, they find a bike for Hannah, actually a tatty old boys BMX but she is happy. A beer in a seafront café – can’t be bad. Weather fantastic, food brilliant, kids happy – France next year? Who knows….
