So Monday 11 - Wednesday 20 July then?
(can't add the lots of flag-waving emojis I want to - guess an iPad issue 🤷🏻‍♂️)

Ok Chaps - I've sent messages to all the hotels, and to Fai for the long, lazy lunch...

The suggested itinerary is basically as above:


Total 8 nights away.
(Plus the first night ferry crossing)

So - who's coming?

  • Le Presidente -
  • Uncle Albert -
  • Donut -
  • TeaBag -
  • The Banker -
  • Biscuit -
  • Alf - (Leaving on 19th)
  • Hedge -
  • Zippy - (From the night of the 14th...)?)



And the unfortunate few...

  • Frank -
  • Long John -
  • Doc -
  • Marty -
  • Peter Elliot -

I'd love to come. But looking difficult. Out of holiday and clash of dates. If there is room to join you for the second half then I might see if I can make that work but probably optimistic.

Ah - we have a hotel/B&B issue...
L'île Ô Reflets, on the 17th-18th are full.

Bonjour Steve !

I remember you, yes. Thank you again for your interest at home.

But can you change your dates, because unfortunatly for you,
I'm full June 17-19 since last year...

Amicalement,
Martial


So, we need a new hotel/B&B locally...
Please have a look - all of you!

Is that a typo.... given we're looking to be there in July, and nights of 16th and 17th?

And the next response from L'Escala Dau Lemosi:

"Hi Steve
We are glad to see you again
It is with great pleasure for July 14 and 15 meals and room.
On the other hand, I don't have more than 8 beds to accommodate you.
Awaiting your reply
We wish you and your loved ones a happy new year 2022
Best regards
Elisa"


I'm sure we can deal with sleeping arrangements if needed...

And the final hotel, Cote Lac, has replied

"Hi Steve,

How are you ?
We hope this virus behind us in july.

No problem for this new booking.

How many rooms do you want ?

Cheers.
Philippe"


So now we need to firm-up numbers - who is on the trip???

Brittany Ferries are no longer doing Portsmouth/Le Havre - freight only.
So, we'll go overnight to Caen from Portsmouth.
The return also need to be to Poole from Cherbourg.
I've started on routes for those crossings.

Ok - I've booked, including a 4 berth cabin.
Others can add their booking to this cabin.
TeaBag will also book a second cabin.
