Another perfect day, with late rise at about 9ishfollowed by breakfast of assorted pastries and coffee and lazy lounging around in the sun and shade, as sun was a bit too hot for comfort and common sense.
We tried the pool at 11.45 am, but was being cleaned at the time and had to wait till after lunch. After lunch and swim we set off for Musee Poussin in Le Grand Andely and, as often in these parts, the road signs sent us in the wrong direction. Nevertheless, Adon found the way in due course and we spent just under an hour admiring local culture, including Neolithic and Roman treasures. We relaxed with a couple of beers afterwards and phoned Pepo, who sent my alarm bells ringing again saying he was camping in field behind house overnight, leaving Bramble behind in the house alone!!! I quickly changed his plans, explaining that leaving dog alone overnight wasn’t such a good idea and asked him to delay his camping outing until tomorrow night, when we’ll be back at home and can take of Bramble.
After sorting out that little domestic situation, we set off for Hotel Le Normandie Restaurant, on 1 Rue Grande at Le Petit Andely, where we’ve just enjoyed a most delightful evening sitting in the rear garden facing the river Seine and a meal of prawn salad, snails, salmon, pheasant, Camembert and Apple Tart (or Tarte de Pomme, which sounds a bit posher).
So we are now enjoying our last few hours in this truly magnificent site and town and are deeply sorry to have to leave it. Roll on summer!
