Very sad to leave the campsite, a very surreal, but fantastic few days (and I was leaving with a hangover – not good).
We left around lunchtime and stopped at a flea market in the morning to peruse a load of French garage clear outs which was interesting to say the least. We headed for Gruisson on the coast where Frank and Sarah (a London couple we met at the Airstream park) had advised is a good place to go to sample the seafood on a quiet stretch of beach. When we got there we are guessing they didn’t go on a Sunday… the place was rammed. Mobile homes, cars, bikes and people everywhere. We continued to Gruisson-Plage where alledgedly some of Betty Blue was filmed, and found the seafood place right at the end of the beach. Unfortunately they only had oysters left which neither of us fancied, so I got some much needed sleep and woke just before sunset in time for dinner.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
