Benodet was our destination for today. Penny and Jim had had a holiday near there 38 years ago and Penny wanted to go back there for old times sake - what she found was that a lot has changed in 38 years!!!
We went down a road that had the most amazing rhododendrons on either side - my photo doesn’t really do it justice.
It was lunchtime when we arrived in Benodet and we found a nice restaurant to eat in. We then went for a walk along the sea front (no dogs allowed on the beach).
This is the Hotel Ker Vennaik which we thought looks a bit like a ship from the back!
I love lighthouses and saw this one on the opposite shore and managed to zoom in on it.
Sainte-Marine on the other side of the River Odet and where a passenger ferry runs from there to Benodet.
Thursday 17th May
We had a quiet day on Thursday. I was still feeling rough with my cough and Jim had rather been overdoing things and needed a day of rest - hooray!!
In the afternoon Richard and I went to Kerplunk (oops sorry Tregunc) to try out the supermarket there and were disappointed with what we found. It was a rather old Casino - I think we will stick to Intermarche. We tried the swimming pool out on our return to the site. The indoor one was like a bath and much too warm for a lovely hot day so we gave the outdoor one a go, which was lovely. There are some slides and a flume (which we didn’t try!) but I have to admit, did look inviting. It was so nice not having to share the pool with hoards of children - there was just one and she only played at the edge.
In the evening Penny said that she would go and get pizzas from Nevez, however it was closed so she went on to the Intermarche and bought ready to cook ones for the men and we had ours from the site take-away. Cooking four pizzas would have taken ages in the caravan and Penny’s chalet doesn’t have an oven. Richard and Jim both like really hot pizzas and the take-away menu didn’t have anything hot on it so some pepperoni and jalapeños on supermarket pizzas and they were quite happy.
