Our guide book tells us that Carnac is the most important prehistoric site in Europe, due to its alignments of around (I didn’t count) 2000 menhirs. It is also a lovely town that we were very happy to spend a couple of nights in, despite the noisy party going on into the small hours of Sunday morning. It also had a great mediatheque with free wifi and a bakery with fantastic bread and yummy chocolate & caramel tart. What’s not to like?

When we went to the landsailing club, D mentioned that we were in a motorhome and the guy recommended a spot just around the corner from the club, where he said we could park overnight. Despite the dozens of motorhomes on the peninsula, no-one else seemed to know about our secret spot! After lunch on the headland, we headed back there for a potter on the beach – we even had a shipwreck from 1765 to look at when the tide went out.
