27th July 1979

Friday 27
Set off for camp at 10.00
= very, very hot

It was a long drive

Wrote to Sam

Caravan = really nice

Me & Fi are in bunk beds
Had a shower and washed my hair
It i
s so hot here

As soon as I set foot in Tranche sur Mer I loved it. It was hot. Everyone except us were French on the camp site and I saw for the first time people dipping their bread and croissants into their coffee and folk drinking red wine at lunch time.......... nobody drank wine in my house ever!! Love it!

Yesterday I popped these open sandwiches up. It amused me as could you ever tell what they are ??
If your stomach can take it, these are the recipes!

1. 4 tablespoons of peanut butter, 2 tablespoons of chopped well-grilled bacon, and 2 tablespoons of coleslaw on brown toast!!

2. 4 oz of cottage cheese, 1 oz of chopped ginger. tiny pinch of curry powder on french bread

3. This is a toasted one - don't eat cold (thanks for the warning!). 1 small tin of baked beans. 2 oz of grated cheese, 1 tablespoon of chopped onions and 1 chopped tomato on toast (we actually have this as a snack ' cheese beanies' but without the onion and tomato it is delicious)

4. 2 oz of cream cheese, 1 oz of chopped walnuts, 2 tablespoons of chopped pineapple, a little chopped peaches an fruit loaf

5. 1 small tin of prawns (what prawns come in tins??), 3 tablespoons of plain yoghurt, 1 teaspoon of Worcester sauce on rye bread

I never knew of such things in 1975??

We have 2 days of uninterrupted sun .... absolutely fabulous :-D

It does seem like years since its been here!!!

70steen said...

70steen said...

gawd I am loosing it .. I have already replied to DM & DP ... that will teach me ... 'must read comments all the way through before commenting ' DOH!!!!! It's the heat you know!!!!!

70steen said...

SB ~ nice post about you :-)
Led Zep... I have liked a few of their tracks but not a huge fan

70steen said...

Sylvie~ I wonder what Tranche is like now. When I went it was very under developed but fabulous ..... you must give me a report about it :)

70steen said...

oo NM ~ the sound is ok over here.... but yes it is 'Here comes the Sun'

70steen said...

Olga ~ have your bra nappers allowed internet access?? I have been so worried about you

There sure were a large collection of yellow sweaters back then, I don't know why ... maybe they showed the pattern off better ?????

i use the tins of prawns at least once a week on my open sandwich. they are more shrimps than prawns. they are nice to just each straight from the tin as well.
