Some much needed R&R

The first few days of our holiday were a bit manic, although to be fair, apart from our Disneyland trip, we didn’t exactly begin our days early and usually did our “touristy bit”, usually after lunch.  But even that could be tiring.

We finally had the chance for some much need rest and relaxation after our day in Disney and lucky for us, the rain seemed to have stopped.   That gave us a chance to explore our campsite.

There was a lake where you could go fishing, canoeing and a few other activities.

A man-made beach where you could just laze around and read while the little ones play with sand.  Later on, little T felt the need to change into her swimsuit and have a little dip.

The first thing she said to me was “It’s cold mummy!”

But of course that didn’t stop her from dipping in and out of the pool with her inflatable dinosaur whom she named Victor.

But kids are never really cold are they?  Their boundless energy of running around like loonies keeps them warm.  Later in the week, the weather really made a big improvement and I actually felt really warm.  That little man-made beach became packed with visitors and the water suddenly became really nice and warm, just the way we like it.

    This looks lovely. We have been to disneyland a few times but always stayed in hotels – mainly as we have visited in the winter months. But this looks fabulous for a summer break 🙂 #countrykids

    • It is fab! We really wanted to stay in a camp and the Eurocamp in Picardy was really suitable for families with young kids. I haven’t even mentioned the pools and slides yet 😉

    I can imagine the sand on my toes! Can’t wait for summer again. Sigh.

    • Summer isn’t over here yet… though sometimes it’s beginning to feel like it is 🙁 Rain, rain, rain… That’s the English weather for you. Sigh.

    Okay, I cracked up when you said she felt the need to change into her suit and go swimming – it would never even occur to me to get that close to the water and not get in! Then I remember how far away we are! What a difference!

    Looks like fun! I love Victor!

    • Hahaha. And I guess it’s also because, over on this side of the world, the water is always just a bit too cold 😉 But that man-made beach certainly became warm once the weather improved. Thank goodness it did. T loves Victor too.

    This amazes me too how my son never gets cold even in winter time! He is just a ball of energy and he’s got his own heater in his little body! #countrykids

    • Yes – kids are amazing aren’t they? If only we had the same built-in insulation 😉

    • It is thanks! And a perfect place to visit when you have a little one 😉
