If you like having a true British experience abroad, Ouistreham is the place. There’s a direct ferry from Portsmouth, so it feels like being back in blighty..
Ben went for a haircut whilst I took a trek to a Carrefour, a 30 minute walk out of town to try and find a gas regulator.
I came back with a gas regulator, some flippy floppy’s and a beach parasol. When we were moored up in Bolougne all the other boats had expensive tent like structures to shade them from the baking sun. I believe my new parasol is more versatile, though possibly a bit garish, like my cheapo flippy floppy’s …
Ouistreham was one of the locations in the D-Day landings (Sword Beach) where British and French troops fought their way through the German defenses, and onto Pegasus Bridge. We visited the No 4 Commando Museum.
I might have got carried away in a warehouse full of wine..
What can I say, Ouistreham for me is a one time visit kind of place. The beach was nice and there were more museums we could have visited, but it wasn’t anything spectacular I’m afraid to say.
