We were so impressed with that little picnic place at Rillé that we decided to stay there for 2 nights. It was lovely and quiet and Adonis spent most of the time fishing and made friends with a French fisherman named Tony, who happened to be an asparagus farmer and lives in Allonnes, right in the middle of the Loire wine growing region. They swapped bait and fishing stories and we now have an invitation to visit and fish from a boat in the Loire!
The first day was very hot, but it cooled down rather a lot yesterday, although we still managed to eat outside, some gorgeous barbecue chicken kebabs.
We left early this morning and followed TomTom to Broglie, with a couple of detours looking for an aire to empty chemical toilet and fill up with water. That wasted a lot of time for nothing, as neither of the indicated places seemed to exist, but we finally managed to fulfill task just north of Le Mans, at a rest place called La Bazoge that had toilets and water taps.
Without further ado, we arrived here at 1.20 pm, had lunch, siesta, Adon walked Bramble and I sorted out dirty clothes for washing when we get home.
Another pizza tonight, so an easy evening.
It’s definitely colder here, 16 °C, and I fear we might need heating on tomorrow. It’s been raining too, but it’s dry at the moment. It really begins to feel like the end of the holiday.
