Yesterday afternoon after settling in, we walked into town. ย Jard-sur-Mur is a small tourist village that reminds me of The Entrance on the central coast. ย  There is a merry-go-round, penny arcade or in this case a euro arcade. ย There are peddle cars and various canoes and things for hire. ย There’s even a wind mill on the hill. There are several nice bars on the water front and we find one with wifi and have a drink and down load the papers.

Nine o’clock on a Monday morning doesn’t appear to be peak hour in Jard-sur-Mur. ย As we do our usual walk it’s very quiet, just the odd council truck and car pass by. ย We walk down to the beach, the water has receded with the low tide and it’s rocks for 200 metres. ย We talk about the overnight activities, for me it was two blokes chatting away in the middle of the aire until someone yelled at them. ย For Pam it was the early morning garbage truck. ย At most aires we have stayed in also have a recycle spot. ย The one at Jard-sur-Mur as elaborate as any, a small entry point at ground level with something far bigger below. ย According to Pam the noise of the truck lifting this mystery container from below ground and emptying its content was apocalyptic.
