Our first stop was this pretty medieval town. We have left the sunshine well and truly behind in England and the first night we could not do anything as it rained non stopped. We had decided to stay at an Aire so we did not have an electric hook up but this didn’t stop us as we have LPG so I was still able to cook us our first proper meal inside the motorhome. A la carte vegetable pasta.
This would not be a “Colin and Karen” trip without it having its downs as well as ups… The Aire gave us good facilities as long as you had all the right equipment, we soon found out that it seems that in France some of the water taps are bigger than in the UK and we were unable to top up with water. This wasn’t too drastic as we still had 25% of water in the tank. It just meant that we would have to be careful and use the water we had carefully. This is something you just wouldn’t give a 2nd thought about when living in a house but we are learning all the time and adapting. So top of the shopping list was to buy a new connector pronto. Fortunately we have a Eco Camel shower head that uses minimal water so we were still able to have showers and I even managed to wash my hair!
The following day the sun was back out in full force so we cycled into the village to explore. I highly recommend visiting this quaint village. It has so much to offer from a walk on the promenade next to the estuary, a stroll around the town or a meal in one of the many restaurants. The medieval part of the town was delightful full of history and with great views.
We stopped at the boulangerie and grabbed some croissants for breakfast as we wanted to get on the road again to our next stopover Albert in the morning.
