We set off at around 7:30am with Granddad Pete volunteering for the first shift. It started going wrong fairly quickly, with there being roadworks apparently everywhere.
A long day of driving across northern France, punctuated by a few random stops and ending with some relaxation.
Our first full day in St Malo, involving some swimming and an afternoon trip into our host city.
Every good holiday in France should involve an aquarium. We've done the fantastic one in La Rochelle, so it was time to try the one in St Malo.
The traditional day on the holiday where we couldn't really be bothered. We did a bit of shopping, a bit of swimming and a bit of walking, but not a lot else.
Today we decided to go to Mont St Michel, so we got up at some ungodly hour and jumped into the bus for the 45 minute drive over. It proved to be an interesting day.
Some nice geology at the seaside. How could a holiday with kids be better ? Well, it could have been closer to home, I suppose.
A generally slow start to the day with a lack of enthusiasm all round. So we left Granny and Granddad at home and scooted off geocaching.
Hands up if you know what "blé" is ! We found out when we arrived at a fête that was dedicated to it.
The Bayeux Tapestry - it's not a tapestry and it wasn't made in Bayeux. I'm sure there's laws against that kind of mis-selling.
A bit of a walk around some locks on a canal, followed by a total inability to find a parking space in Dinard (again).
An afternoon on the beach, followed by a third failure at trying to get a parking space in Dinard.
An afternoon of wandering round the town, followed by an inexplicable trip back inland to find a restaurant. It was a good one though.
A visit to some crazy and slightly unnerving rock sculptures on a cliff above the sea, followed by a major battle between us and our luggage.
