Miélan - à l'Auberge des Grandparents
Posted by Richard on Sunday 7th October 2001 at 10:29 PM
Gerald and Evelyne (Laura's parents) have lived in Castex, near Miélan, in the Gascony département of Gers, since 1997. You couldn't find a better spot for sampling foie gras and Armagnac. :-)
Sur la Plage à Messanges

Our next stop was Messanges in the Landes département on the Atlantic coast (just above Biarritz). A great deal of time was spent constructing sand-castles on the beach. And having discovered body-boarding earlier in the summer, we couldn't have picked a better place to develop our skills!

Traveling back to Cherbourg (for a very early morning crossing), gave us the chance to visit le Mont-St-Michel. Well worth the detour, but surprised I didn't take more photos.
