A very peaceful night was followed by a relaxed morning and then a departure later that afternoon.
Our first stop was at a brand new tiny village aire, and had it been the right time of day we’d have stopped, given the lovely views and peaceful location. All the services were free and modern and so we took advantage of those and left.
I was heading towards another lake, this time the enormous Lac du Der-Chantecoq. There were a number of possible stops, but I was keeping the super-busy ones as a very extreme last resort. Anyway, given the continued exteme heat, we found a great place beneath some tall trees, just a stone’s throw from the lake, and only a handful of quiet neighbours.
When we do park with others, the best formation for us is nose to tail rather than side by side. That way you get to maintain your personal space. It was great for sitting out, and we also enjoyed a lakeside walk as the evening cooled.
On our return we sat outside and demolished a box of cantuccini (I had to look up that spelling) biscuits, dipping them in Amaretto. Very nice indeed. (Note to self – get those on the shopping list pronto).
