Our journey from Bordeaux to La Rochelle was broken up by an impromtu stay in Soubise, a small town on La Charente River, just south of La Rochelle.

Our eventual arrival in La Rochelle on the 13th was much later than hoped due to tantruming children and the necessity to stock up on supplies. We struggled to find somewhere to park the camper and very nearly got stuck in a VERY narrow street but eventually we found "Aire de Camping-Car Jean Moulin" which was effectively a huge flat car park but we had grass and space and we were delighted.

The following day we explored this glorious city by bike. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and stopped for a picnic lunch before devouring French pastries after which we spent hours discovering little lanes and waterside paths.

We and found the incredible Parc Charruyer with a mini zoo and a fantastic playground. We spent several hours here playing a swinging and laughing. The colours of autumn were brilliant and both boys had a wonderful time, it really was a perfect afternoon.
