The day started out a bit drizzly but seemed like it would clear up.
After breakfast we went out for a walk. This path was not far from our gite and used to be an old railway line. We saw some interesting things, including an elephant hawk moth caterpillar and a stinkhorn mushroom. On the way back, we took a detour through Saint-Nicholas-de-Pierrepont, which is the closest village to where we were staying.
By now the ground had dried up a bit, so when we got back the children played in the garden for a while.
In the afternoon we went south to the coast and found a lovely beach, although we took a wrong turn and drove rather a long way round to get to it. Colin, Aaron and Tabitha headed straight to the sea to explore the rockpools. They came back once the tide had covered the rocks and Tabitha was excited to discover hundreds of sandhoppers! Aaron was less keen on those and had a bit of a meltdown.
Back at the gite for hot chocolate, baths and yet more playing in the garden!
