France Day 2
What a fantastic day we have all had in France. We enjoyed a gorgeous breakfast of croissants and pain au chocolate and then boarded the coach ready for a fun day ahead. Our first stop of the day was the World War II cemetery where we were fortunate enough to be given a guided tour by a former American marine. He told us lots of information about the war being fought on French soil and some very interesting personal stories about the soldiers buried there. The children were a credit to themselves, behaving in a respectful and interested manner throughout our visit. After leaving the cemetery we headed to the beautiful town of St.Malo. The mist had cleared and we were greeted by a gorgeous blue sea. We ate lunch and then had a lovely few hours playing in the sea and on the beach. There was just time for a walk through the town for some delicious ice cream before heading back to the Chateau. We had time for a quick shower before dinner. Tonight's menu included chicken, wedges, vegetables and stuffed peppers. Our final activity of a busy day was the Chateau Olympics where we had a great time participating in a variety of team games such as tug of war, three-legged races and egg and spoon races. The children have gone to bed tired and happy.
