After a good 7 months of work without much time off I’ve come back off a lovely holiday in Ile de Re, France. The island is 4km off the coast of La Rochelle and is a fantastic place and a popular place for ‘Le Weekend’. It reminded me how bad my French was but nice to practice what poor language skills I have.
Famous for salt and donkeys in pyjama’s as well as good wine and sea food. Gros Jonc is the long vertical beach on the right hand side at the top of the picture. Lovely in the sun and 2 minutes walk from where we were staying.
The closest I got to radio was seeing a chap with a TM25H (Le Mans 24 hour race special event station) T-shirt but as he was heading for the gents I wasn’t going to strike up a conversation.
