Our friends in Holland had breakfast outside yesterday, while we shivered indoors with jumpers and heating on. And then today ... the sun came out, the temperature went up and we’ve spent the day gardening at home. This evening the balloons are up and the birds are singing.
There are some advantages to this ‘being closed in June’ business. John even had time to sit down and check the quality of the local Sauvignon wine! Not a green t-shirt in sight.
The water is SLOWLY starting to recede. The road to Francueil is still cut off but we should be able to access the campsite tomorrow, and maybe get into the wash blocks. We’re getting lots of emails from people wanting to know whether they’ll be able to stay this weekend and the honest answer is we just don’t know. This is a quite unprecedented flood and we have no idea how long it’s going to take to get everything up and running. We’re mainly concerned about the drains and how much goop came up. June is normally one of our best months, and we know that there are campers staying not far away and very anxious to be able to get to us, and let their real holidays begin (which in itself is very flattering!). So we’ll let you know and please, rest assured that we will do our utmost to get this sorted out as soon as we can!
