Normandy with the Hull's

Our second holiday of the summer was to Normandy. We met up with Anne, Pete, Emily and Vicky at a Siblu holiday park just outside Bayeux. I drove over and it took about 4.5 hours. Allen wasn't with us as he'd gone off to America for work.
Our caravan was a few down from Anne and Pete's so it worked really well. We started with a BBQ at ours on our first night. I'd brought loads of stuff with me in the car so it was great fun.
On the site there was a pool that was covered, the weather was good but there was quite a strong cool wind. Also on the site was a playground, boules court and a bar. We made full use of everything but did eat in as the restaurant was very limited. Everyone got on very well. We did a few day trips out. One to Arromanches. We had lunch at a great restaurant and walked around. It was a little cold so I took Jacob and Abi off to the 360 cinema. It tells you all about the landings during the second World War. It was very interesting and Jacob and Abi were amazed by it. When we came out the weather was beautiful. On the way back we stopped at a cider farm and bought some local produce and also popped to a farm that makes ice cream. We all had a few flavours and also tried lots too! I bought a few tubs to take home for pudding. I am not an ice cream fan but he rhubarb was delicious. We also visited Bayeux. I'd never done the tapestry before. It was excellent. We had a lunch out and a walk around the cathedral and a look around the town. It is a beautiful place. We only stayed Monday to Friday as Allen flew back in. It was lovely to catch up with the Hull's and explore Normandy a little more.
