A lot of travelling to Connelles

We woke up early and had breakfast and finished packing. We were meant to be off the barge at 9:00 but yesterday we discovered that was not the case. Our paperwork was completed on Saturday afternoon as the staff are not working today. However, we had a taxi booked for 9:30 and I didn’t want to change that. We were ready and waiting for him when he arrived and it was a clear run to Clamecy.

As we had an hour to wait before the train departed, Dave and I walked into the village to buy croissants, pain au chocolat and a mini crocombouche.

The train left on time but we had to change trains at Laroche-Migennes for some reason. It was a good thing the conductor was there when that happened as we would not have known to do so otherwise. We got to Bercy on time and Ben, our taxi driver, was waiting for us. He dropped Dave and I at Europcar and then took Bev and Eric to their hotel. Their onward trip is to Ireland. We collected our car after the young gentleman helping us got us a better price, and the addition of road side assistance. We left Charles de Gaulle just after 15:15 and had a very scenic drive. There is an amazing Church at Les Andelys and after that we crossed the Seine.

Dave had found a supermarket on Google for us to do our shopping. It is a Turkish supermarket, and very interesting. But the eggs and water were sold out. We headed back the way we came to Louviers which has its own Notre Dame.

There we bought a few more essentials at the Carrefour before retracing our path.

We went on a very narrow road to get to the resort. We arrived at 18:25 and the first order of the day was doing a load of laundry. We had supper and relaxed and got an early night. Despite being in transport all day I managed 11742 steps and 6.26km.
