MY WEEKEND OF MAY 3

The warm spring temperatures had suddenly dropped to freezing point, and I even had to put the heating on ! The sun is shining but it's cold !

I spent the weekend with preparing my travel computer and put things in I would need.
In the afternoon I went with my empty suitcase to Nicole to see how both of our suitcases would fit in my trunk. It was perfect and lots of room left ! We discussed what clothing we had to take along, as the weather doesn't seem very warm.



And while you read this, I will be driving 450 km (280 miles) to France, to Houlgate in Normandy, just in front of the English South East coast.  This little town had been an important place for the allies in WWII. If there were not the channel, I just could drive over to Torquay or Plymouth !

Nicole's dog Charlie, a Golden Retriever is coming with us and will take the whole space of the back seat. We have rented an apartment for this week.  Nicole and I have been already together on holidays in Tunisia and Egypt, and now we want to discover Normandy which we don't know at all. Charlie will be our body guard and force us to do a lot of walks !

I will write a post every day what we will see and how we are spending our days.

I loved Normandy when I was there just over two years ago. Hope you like it as much as I did!

Sounds like a wonderful Holiday! That is one thing about having a dog -- you do have to go for walkies, whether you want to or not. (But I am sure you would anyway to explore your new place!)

It's always fun to venture out with a friend. Goldens are great dogs, we used to have one. Hope you all had a wonderful time.

Wow, your trip sounds lovely though I do believe Normandy might be a bit cold since its facing the English Channel. Have fun Gattina and hope to read more about your trip.
