“You think big don’t you?’

“Yes, but think of how much we could make in just one year Harry. Instead of living in a cottage we could build our own chateaux.’

“I’m going to ask my dad when I get back.’

When they reached Le Moulin Boutineau it was 11.15 p.m. they unpacked their bags and other equipment from the van and headed to reception to check in.

“Good Evening and welcome to the Le Moulin Boutineau; I am Michelle Dubois and this is my Husband Giles. We own the lakes and cottages here in Caen.’

“Have you been here long asked Susan?’

“This will be our 25th year.’

“An anniversary year then.’

Yes, Giles and I were married that year too.’


Can I ask you how many guests do you have staying here in a season?’

“That depends, but roughly about seventy guests a week.’

How long do you stay open?’

“We close for only two weeks to allow us to clean out the lakes, for breeding and they become over grown with reeds and have to be cut back. My son Felix helps us to maintain the lakes.’

“Do you restock the lakes with new fish that you buy asked Harry?’

No, no Monsieur, we do run a breeding programme here which I can show you.’

“Yes we would like to see that.’

“If you would like to see our hatchery I can arrange my son to show you tomorrow maybe at lunch time.’

“Thank you we would like that.’

Now you have the two bedroom cottage on the end it is very quiet and it is near the Lake so you do not have far to walk. You are not restricted there are plenty of good fishing spots around the lake which I’m sure you will find.’ The bait shop opens at 6 a.m. if you need anything.’

“Thank you.’

“Would you like any help with your equipment.’

“No thank you, I think we will be fine.’

Susan picked up the key then they made their way across the grass with all of their gear.

The cottage looked nice from the outside and was very spacious inside. All the floors were wooden there was a small kitchen area with an electric kettle, a toaster, and two fridges. One fridge to keep bait cool that was clearly marked.
