After a long drive from our home in Holland, my daughter, Superkid, his father and I arrived very late at a campsite in the middle of France,where we were setting up tents at 23.00 hours in the dark.
Our place of destination was Messanges 45 kilometres north of Biarritz and 150 kilometres south of Bordeaux on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean.
Saturday,4th August 2007.
A long day of travelling on roads with one traffic jam after the other took us to Messanges where we arrived at 23.00 hours. The owner of the house found us in the middle of the village and guided us to the house. She is a wonderful person and so is her partner. After having a glass of wine together we settled in the house and went to bed.
These were the surroundings of our holiday residence: Sea, forest and a kind of lake formed by the sea. We walked, cycled and swam and had a pleasant week together.

On our way back to Holland we came through the town of Montbazon and saw this castle ruin, so we went to have a closer look. The lady who sold us the tickets, told us that a team of archeologists has been working in the ruins for four years now.
