We left the campsite just after 9am, just used the last of the milk and we have no bread so first job today was to find a supermarket. After filing up with diesel and food at Carrefour we headed for the N10.
We also needed to fill up with LPG so we stopped at the first service station on the N10 selling GPL. No problem filling up but when it came to paying I had to stand in the naughty corner while the attendant went out onto the forecourt to replaced the filler hose correctly. (She did a little mime for me but I thought she was pretending to be a tea pot).
We headed to the Capbreton Aire, it was an easy journey but were surprised that there are so many lorries on the N10.
We arrived in sunshine, the aire is just behind the sand dunes, we walked over the dunes (about 1 minute from where we are parked) to one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen.
The aire is large with marked bays (long enough for our van but not very wide). The water and electricity are turned off but we filled out water tank before we left the campsite . There is no charge to park here in the winter.
This is the busiest aire we have stopped at so far. We have spoken to two German couples, a German dog shook my hand.
We got chatting with an English couple Peter & Jenny and invited them over for a drink, both woke up the next morning with sore heads.A bread van came at 9am, Paul got some croissants and bread.
