Just back from 2 weeks at Le Pas Opton,Spring Harvest's holiday site in France.
We had a great time and the weather was very good with much less rain than England,judging by the length of the grass when we returned home!
The park itself is attractive and well cared for with plenty to do including a heated swimming pool.
It was a joy to see friends Jeff and Sarah from Herefordshire and to meet their children who I don't think had been born the last time we met!
.Needless to say we bored the children with plenty of talk about the old days!
Being at Le Pas Opton was more like a restful retreat than a busy conference though we did have speakers and a morning and evening meeting. There were also really good children's acivities run by an enthusiastic and gifted team
The second weeks speaker was Roger Sutton who spoke powerfully on spiritual journeys drawing on passages that included The Prodigal Son and Psalm 84
Roger spoke with great honesty ,openess, and humour while making some powerful points,which I found enormously helpful.
We drove back to Roscoff to catch the ferry .It's not the biggest of the channel ports, but (along with St Malo) it is my favourite. Typically French and very beautiful on a sunny if chilly evening.
