Hmmm, nothing more plaintive than a Labrador that either a) wants its dinner or b) wants to go down the beach. Well, as din-dins has been served and duly scoffed, its answer b)! Wall to wall gray today but it was low tide at 5:05pm it is a great time to go for a stroll on the sand. Take the 'Whanger', the plastic throwing stick that I use to launch the tennis ball and Truffle is in her element!
It's strange how little things become funny (or maybe it's just my sense of humour). The afore mentioned tennis ball was bought for 90c at Decathlon and has a big green spot on it to denote its bouncy-ness. All Truffles Tennis balls have had names, obviously, the latest one is called "Spot" as in 'Spot the ball!'. She has had four Australian ones, "Bouncer" named after the Lab. in the Australian sit-com 'Neighbours', his cousin 'Bounder' and the two Aborigine ones "Fellah belong beach" and "Fellah down under" who lived under the floor in the the boot of the 4x4! All good fun but I worry about me and anthropomorphic Tennis balls!
Just a heads up about cheap air travel from France. France is notorious for expensive air fares, just do a comparison for say a flight to the US from Paris compared to flying from London. Anyway, if you need to travel within France or to other destinations in Europe, there are a couple of airlines you might have missed. Air France is starting to run a service called Hop! and two others you should look out for are Transavia and also Volotea. These offer some great bargain travel, especially Volotea with prices down to €29 !
