the first time, we returned to the same town (Biot), the same
site (Camping du Pylone), and even the same caravan for a
holiday, only 12 months after the previous holiday. It was
useful to know in advance what we would find, and what we
didn't need to bring. Other caravans were available, but we
so loved the setting next to the river (but with the protective
fence) that we plumped for the same again.
was all James' doing of course - he had been telling everyone
for months before that we were going to France, to the swimming
pool that he could take his inflatable dolphin into. He
said it often enough that somehow, it happened. Of course,
we wouldn't have booked it if we hadn't enjoyed ourselves
so much last year. Returning, the caravan felt like a home
from home, with James seen here using the CBeebies website!
usual, we took a supply of books to keep the boys entertained
(as well as the laptop). Something of the nature of the holiday
is apparent from the fact that I got through two novels before
we touched down in Luton. Our evening routine of stories before
bed was maintained on holiday, sometimes out in the evening
sunshine, or otherwise in the caravan.
to the campsite also meant we felt even more at home with
the people this year. Tony & Jill's stay at their caravan
again overlapped with our week, and we had a lovely evening
of adult conversation when they came over to our caravan one
night after the boys had gone to bed. Getting to know people
has made the thought of a third holiday at Camping du Pylone
seem very attractive.
