We had the place generally to ourselves for the first two weeks but things have gotten a bit busier this week as there is an international bodyboarding competition happening here at the moment and a lot of the guys involved with the media side of it are staying here. So the place is full of surfer guys (and they are all guys bar the masseuse), one of them even called me "dude". They are nice guys though we only see them in the evening as they are off covering the event from before dawn each morning.
It looks like we'll be here for a few more weeks (no complaints) as the house we have decided on (finally) probably won't be available until the start of November. It's a creóle house with lots of fruit trees (litchi, coconut, banana, custard-apple and possibly more) to provide shade and fruit (hopefully). We should be signing the rental documents on Tuesday so it'll be good to have that sorted all going well (you never know with French paperwork!).
