This blog is flying south for the winter.
The packing of the van has begun, subject as ever to great indecision and panic about which clothes to take and what kitchen equipment is needed.
The one item that was not questioned is this one:
It will help to pass those long evenings until the Pablo’s ATH begins. We have purchased vol 2 of these puzzles but think that one hefty book should see us okay for this trip and, after all, I am supposed to be keeping the payload down. If I leave the second book behind I can take another jumper… Will we need jumpers? Not if last winter’s weather is anything to go by, at least not after the snow and the rain ran out. I think we need to pack for three seasons.
We shall be heading to known territory initially and hope to be in Arcachon the day after leaving home. If I remember correctly, it was warm and sunny in Arcachon last year and we were eating ice cream on the prom.
Night one will be on an Aire somewhere between here and the coast.
See you soon.
