Awaycation France - Day 6 Part 1

Thunder! Thunder!

What a start to the day. At 2am the first drops of rain on the roof. I closed the roof and then it started to flash with lightning ⚡ and the accompanying thunder.

Reggie of course went berserk as he does at home. It was easily 4am before it subsides and we are able to get to sleep and Reggie could rest. This meant that his usual "comfort" breaks were delayed. But not by much.

By 8am he'd had his breakfast and we had been for a walk to pick up out fresh bread and croissants. Another comfort break. I had to stop him peeing up the ice cream fridge in the shop. To think he is housetrained!!

As we sat outside for breakfast the early morning sun began to be hidden behind the clouds and the air became very chilly. More thunder as the sky became grey.

Ideally we need to get a shopping session in although the bar/café does food and snacks.

The site is good though noisy. Not from the campers but the workman that seem to be tarmacing a path from the bridge over the river along the bank on this side. Another cycle lane? It's not that conducive to some R&R when the background noise is so invasive.

Our trip out today was only as far as St Cyprien. Google said 8kms. Satnav said 17kms. It was 17.

We got what we needed for a couple of days lunches and maybe dinner. We also picked up a couple of Bergerac rose wines. I can't drink red any more as it gives me stomach problems.

On the way back we dropped into the site's camping-car area to drain off the grey water. We have noticed a meal underneath and very little came out. We also took on fresh water. I let that drain to ensure that it was clean in the tank.

We had lunch and then an afternoon of doing nothing.
