Nice 1 ? glad you got there.

Did you do the steps opposite the aire ?

We are just north of there now at Bonneval.

Drove up through a hell of a storm, down to 10mph on the peage coming here.

Heavens have also just opened here making everyone run for cover.

Terrible forecast for tomorrow, seriously fed up.

St Valery en Caux is not far away if you've time and a good spot but check the weather ( wind ) as you are right on the end of the entrance to the harbour and very exposed.

We have spent a few nights there, the road to the aire (Le Port) narrows but it has never been a problem, quite a few years ago probably about 1998 we were leaving there because of a bad storm, we came down Le Port along with several other vans and we had no choice but to turn into Quai d'Aval on the right (red arrow), we all parked there while the sapeurs-pompiers were trying to stop cars being washed into the water on the entrance to the harbour (where the black arrow is), they dragged a few cars away but two went into the water and sank, the waves were very high coming down from the sea and 46557because the harbour is closed at the end the waves had nowhere to go, we had to stay there until low tide when we were allowed to leave, it was more exciting than frightening46556
