We have arrived in Italy!!!

After a stressful drive along the coastal road from France that went up some of the highest mountains we have been accoss, we finally arrived at our campsite.

Last night we partied with Caz and Booth, celebrating Caz's 31st Birthday....pictures to follow shortly but only have 30 mins online. They are currently staying in an apartment just outside Cannes, so we pitched up at a campsite down the road, had the best meal and drank far too much!

Tomorrow we start early and head for the lake regions....

Little Ole' me!!!!

Hello all,
Just thought I'd write a quick message, as its always Rols the wind guru who writes for us!! Have to say though, thats cos usually i'm sunning myself so no hardship for me!
Hope you like all our pictures, life is grand and I've just consumed an almond magnum in record time... what more could you want?
Much much love
Janey xxxxxxxxxx

Gorge De Verdon




Another beautiful place up in the alps, with water so cold it turned your feet numb

River Windsurfing




Never one to turn down the chance for a windsurf, I showed that you could windsurf on this small piece of river....75 litres was too small for the conditions but I needed a small fin for the weeds and rocks. Never mind though....look at that view and 4.7 metre conditions again!

Lavender Fields




After the Sunflower fields on the way up, we had Lavender fields on the way back down


We resisted the urge to rip up handfuls like the other cars seemed to be doing

Lac De St.Croix






These are pictures taken at the Lac De St.Croix


The water was crystal clear and although it was cold, it was very, very clean


We had dinner in a restaurant above the lake and our camping pitch backed onto the lake.
This was the 1st time for ages that I used my big sail and board....It felt pretty weird but it was great to windsurf on the lake.
We also did a lot of swimming




After the Etang De Berre we headed inland to a lake called "Lac De St.Croix"


It is up in the alps and the badger took his time up some of the slopes but never faltered.
We wished we had Michael's eye with the camera...but gave it our best shot
