Another sunny day, Rosemary went off to pick up the bread, it was a baguette, small thing, should have ordered a flute. Just can’t to get to grips with the varied sizes of French bread. After breakfast walked up to reception to decide on where we could go for some sites. We were Abbeyed out, so they were off the list. I got the list down to three places, a Grand Place where there were outcrops of rock and archaeological stuff, a wine pace and some caves.
Instead we had a quiet day, walked around the lake, watched the birds and studied the numerous fishermen who had set up camp for the day. We admired the seemingly empty TGV trains on their way to Lyon and beyond. We would soon have our HS2 passing nearby us. Yes these are noisy, and where there is a curve there are screeching rails. At least they seem to disappear for the French lunch, and don’t start until quite late in the morning and are gone quite early in the evening. (I am writing this at 21.00 and have not heard a TGB for a while now.) Ate lunch, read books, nosed at the other mobile homes and campers.
Found an intriguing 2006 Landrover Defender with awning and attached tent. The tent and awning were in Landrover brown and green. Transpired they had been to the island of Sardinia.
The Brits across the road in a bigger van were on their way possibly to Spain, but were considering apartments as they were almost the same price as a campsite.
We planned the next day as we were going to be on the move again, this time it was going to be towards Reims. Three campsites, one with horrendous reviews, mainly because people had been refused entry as they were too young, and the onsite mobile homes were in poor condition. Also reports of midges, it though was on a lake and recommended for bird watches. The ACSI site was in a middle of a town, the guide book said it could be noisy in September because of the grape pickers. It was next to a vinery. A third site was called Camping Nature, R immediately thought this to be a reserve for nudists. Looks OK to me and a relatively small site. This is my next target, I think.
The weather looks OK for the rest of our holiday!!
