Vendee 1985

This holiday, a 2 week stint back at Camping les Amiaux in St Jean de Monts, was later than usual – we usually went in late July or early August but this one was in late August. Late enough that I celebrated my 17th birthday while we were over there.
Remember that this was back in the days when the amount of booze you could bring home was strictly limited – my dad had realised that while you can’t buy alcohol in the UK until you’re 18, your duty-free allowance kicked in when you reach 17. So by coming back after my 17th birthday, we (he) was able to bring back quite a bit more than usual. Probably mainly Ricard and “paint stripper” (his term) Marc.
