Turns out it was hiding down here after all. Today was the first proper south of france day that we have had, cloudless and scorching. Really wonderful in fact. In many ways this is the perfect campsite, when we are tired of the full on sunshine, our pitch and hammocks are well shaded by trees, but when we want to sunbathe, the area by the pool is a real suntrap. Some umbrellas there too. The pool is of course freezing when you have been baking in the sun, but it is perfect.

We were invited to a celebration this evening, the campsite was just awarded their third star, so there was champagne and snacks on the terrace....and some amazing cider from Brittany....I am now on the terrace, it overlooks a big valley watching the sky fade from a vivid orange to red yellow and bluegrey..It has been so long since I have seen a proper sunset that I am humbled and awed by its simple beauty all over again
