When you are camping it is etiquette – in fact, obligatory – to stare at those camping, and, if you are the campee, to be stared at.
That’s what the first day has taught us.
That may have something to do with our unique style of homely camping that emphasises honest tenting, good times and beer over the electrical hook-up, caravans and awnings of our elders.
If I was writing a camping guide about the chateau, I’d probably say, “Nice place, good views, a lake, and well-appointed facilities.” But the stand out feature was culinary. We arrived fairly knackered but luckily were able to order pizzas from the restaurant that came on an immaculately thin, crisp base. They went down well.
The weather’s been fantastically warm and sunny. To be honest, I really can’t even begin to describe just how warm it was. So, solid performance there felicia.
Few pics from Tournus and Macon below.
Tomorrow we’re off to Grenoble in our last leg of France before we hit Italy. Still to pick a campsite but will work that out in the morning.
In the meantime, here’s a sunset from the campsite.
