France – Day 3

We started off our 3rd day in Saint Leonard with freshly baked baguette, croissant and Danish pastry from our local boloungerie.   The Bonne Maman variety jam jars were from a local supermarket down the road for €2.50 or so.  A steal compared to London prices.

The town was rather quiet and we decided to head over to Le Touquet to buy a pair of boots I saw on a shop window a few days ago.   Hubby spotted this roo outside a toy shop in Le Touquet.

DSC03474As with the Aqualud, the rides were empty.   We would have gone on it had the bear been older.
