few of the thousands
sur MER .
This trip to the Atlantic coast of France was not like my
usual vacations where I'd wander off to places like Uganda, Vietnam,
or Ethiopia which most of people in the rest of the world considered
unusual.. No, this vacation to Bretignolles-sur-Mer
was a family-style vacation stuck in one place for the entire ten
days.. When I saw the mobile home, amid
one thousand other mobile homes, I thought I might scream..
This was one of several campsites in the area..
I really couldn't imagine anyone considering this a "normal"
was where my friend had come for vacation the past thirty years..
If he didn't go there, he didn't feel he had a vacation..
Well, I certainly never had any vacation like it before..
We hung out at the mobile home almost the whole vacation..
Of course, it was just a five minute walk over huge dunes to
the ocean.. And, one day we went to Puy
I was continually
amazed that thousands of people really considered this a vacation..
The big event of our day was going to the grocery to plan our
daily meals.. Fortunately, I didn't do
the cooking.. Every day was a barbecue
- and really good.. I ate very well..
