Penfriend Roseline Digard came for 3 weeks near the end of the Summer term.

Cousin Audrey got married to Clive Ball: Hazel and I were bridesmaids . My first pair of high heels!

Then we dropped Roseline back at her country house in Coupvray/ Compiegne before heading down to the Costa Brava in the caravan

We stayed in a campsite in Blanes. Enjoyed the local markets. Dad was very uneasy with having Germans as neighbours in the camp. Toilets left a lot to be desired! Had a day in Barcelona, saw Gaudi's Sacrado Familia and went to a bullfight

On the return journey I think I travelled across country from Orleans to Nantes by train and was picked up by Roseline and her father there. Then spent a week with all her family in a Maison Familiale before returning to Paris - must reread correspondence: have kept all her letters

After much practice at picking up a brick from the bottom of the Mounts swimming pool, I obtained my Life Saving Bronze Medaillon
