MY HOME IN FRANCE
MY KNITTING AND CROCHET AND ALL THE OTHER THINGS THAT MATTER TO ME
Sunday, October 11, 2009
This just has to be one of my favourite places. Only twelve or so miles from us, it's the perfect place to take the family. It's primarily a fishing resort but there's enough here to keep all age groups entertained, whether fishing or not. Part of the lake has been sectioned off for swimming, with a man-made beach, a diving board and a lifeguard. Behind the beach is a play park with lots of activities. Another part of the lake has pedalloes and kayaks for hire. There is a restaurant, a bar, a camp site, plenty of picnic areas with tables and chairs set up, toilets (not the finest in France and the ladies has no lock on the door!), and you can walk around the entire lake on the winding footpath, where you'll see families set up for the whole day. It's a lovely friendly place, and the only thing you have to pay for is entrance to the beach area - and that's only €8 for the day! You don't even pay for parking!
I live in France with my husband who works in construction and renovation. I work from home as an internet researcher and freelance writer. I have two grown up sons; they each have lovely wives and between them have provided me with four gorgeous grandchildren, a boy aged 11, and three girls, one aged 8, one who will be two in August, and her new sister who is just three weeks old.
I am part of an online knitting group which makes items for all sorts of charities, from preemie babies to animal rescue centres. Details of our group - and all the relevant info for anyone who wants to join us - is in this blog.
