I've been there, is that the dune du pilat? I've climbed it, Europes biggest sand Dune.
I spent two consecutive summers in Bordeaux when I was 16/17 working in a holiday camp
we had a fair few day trips to Archechon, I was introduced to oysters for the first time, straight from the sea, delicious.
My thoughts have been turning towards holidays too, not sure my eldest will want to go with me this summer, he's in luurve, my middle boy may have a summer job and my youngest is going to Portugal with a friends family so I don't think we'll be doing the annual family bucket and spade holiday.
It's the end of an era.
Yes, that is where it is! I love it there, it's so beautiful.
Not looking forward to the day when my kids go off on their own. We have such fun – gives me the chance to do loads of stuff I can't really get away with in other bits of my life!
Watched Toy Story 3 with the kids on DVD the other night and I was on the verge of blubing the whole way through. You know, it's all about leaving home and growing up and not being wanted anymore. When he went to bed, my big one got one of his real baby toys out to cuddle up with and woke me up in the night to tell me he really loved me. Cute but think he sort of picked up on the adult theme of it, life after your kids have gone.x
