I had found a signed motorhome parking area at Saint-Cyprien. The parking area is easy to access, not far from the beach, but the weather was terrible; pouring rain, wind.The parking was a bit muddy but I found a dry hardstanding on which to park with a good run, slightly down, to get out!
HOWEVER… by the time the morning came, after a night of torrential rain, I found I was now at the far side of a newly formed lake!
After waiting a hour or so for the water to recede, which, it soon became apparent, wasn’t going to happen, and with yet more rain forcast, I was just starting to call the insurance recovery service when the local Police Municipale arrived. I guess someone had reported a marooned Camping-car! They stayed for 2 hours while I tried to move, and when that proved impossible, assisted by calling the local recovery truck. A really friendly and helpful service from the Police Municipale. No damage done, so headed off down the coast looking for somewhere nice and high to stop for the night!
