Bad news Nigel, allready though this might get difficult...
Allready thought of "base camp" for us when joining in, driving to Ouistreham, lauch boat and settle down @ campingground across the channel (just over a mile by road, click here
), where trailer and maybe family who do not want to go out in the boat can be left behind for a couple of days of holiday, a lot of things to see from shore as well, Caen itself is nice! They rent cabins as well.
Allthough I checked this to use this as base camp and join in with the UK gang, and return @basecamp a couple of days later, it could be used as camp for daytrips. All destinations, with exeption of Cherbourg can be easily reached with daytrips, Isigny sur Mer is a just under 100mile trip there and back, no need to spend time in a big industrial environment (le Havre).
Allthough I partly agree with "sort of defeats the objective", this is the best alternative I could come up with... If daytrips are a no-go things unfortunally don't look good
, I appreciate the effort made Nigel
Does a reschedule make things any better or is this area difficult the entire season?
