The camping part of our holiday is now pretty much over. We only have to put the tent up once more when we get back to Dunkirk at the end of the week to catch the ferry home.
Today we are moving south to the Loire Valley and a caravan at Parc Des Alicourts in Pierrefitte Sur Sauldre. What a lovely caravan…we’ve got a little balcony and everything. As soon as the door is open I have to run pretty quick so I beat Chipper to the top bunk.
Our first day trip was out to Château de Chenonceau. Eddi had seen some photos of a pretty village called Romorantin-Lanthenay on the way so we went to look … who knew that it was actually a twin town with home?!
And so back in the car and on we go to Chateau de Chenonceau which is very pretty indeed. It is having extensive restoration work done so there is a lot of scaffolding around parts of the castle. It is also really, really hot today so walking about outside is pretty hard work.
Chenonceau is a small château with a really big history. There are so many really interesting stories which you can read about here.
Well, that’s it for another day. The next trip on the agenda is to see the Pont Canal de Briare built by the same chap who built that humungous tower in Paris. Thanks for joining me on my travels.
