Lily as well took care of the entertainment on the camping for all other ages. In the afternoon often some sprtsactivities and in the evening there was sometimes life music in the camping restaurant. So, also the people that didn;t go away to do some exploration of Cotentin and sightseeing, always had something to do on the camping as well.
Three cheers to Lily, the camping entertainer. Every day in the morning, the camping and above all Lily herself, organised a children's club. She always came up with great original ideas for the kids, varing from building castles of sand on the beach, to making clay figures or other decorations. Lily was really a sweetheart for all the children and we hope she will keep on doing thisjob in the way she did it for Ilja in 2006.
Like many places throughout Bretagne and Normandy, Maupertus-sur-Mer also has some megelithic structures. Leftovers of some prehistoric cultures that lived in these neighbourhoods and erected stone monuments for their deceased clan members or for the counting of days in the use of some solar calander. Many things about these standing stones (Menhirs) are still in the dark and also the stone grave sites have many mysteries surrounding them. The Menhir of Maupertus-sur-Mer was replaced and re-erected in modern times, as it had fallen to the acts of war in WWII and endangered by extention of the runways of the airport. The stone is called ""La Grande Pierre" (Big Pierre) and dates bag to the neolithic era (4500 to 2500 BC).
Just buy a throw away barbecue and the things you like most to grill. On the beach of Anse-du-Brick you seek out a nice place and start the barbecue. Great way to enjoy your holiday as well as eat whatever you like best.
We loved the sunsets at our camping, though the wind could get quite chilly. In the evening, when the tide came in, the waves also looked somewhat higher then during the day and sometimes even some surfers appeared, playing in the waves with their surfboards. The views were always wonderful and Ilja - when not already asleep - played in the sand building his castles.
