La Ferté Beauharnais, Monday 11th July 2011


Motorhome aire at La Ferté Beauharnais


We’ve found yet another magnificent aire  on the river Beuvron, just east of Neung-sur-Beuvron that we loved so much last year.  We are parked right on the edge of the lake, where Adonis is now fishing.  There is lots of room, shade, picnic tables, toilets and running water: ALL FOR FREE!!!  It’s very hot today, the hottest day so far, and it’s just nice to laze around doing nothing.

We left Marbué at around 9.20 am this morning and had a couple of failed attempts at buying a baguette and cake before we realised that down here most shops and business shut on a Monday.  We finally got our required items at Vidal supermarket and continued on our way down here, arriving at 10.30 am, so a very easy drive on local regional roads D925 and D923.

They seem to be getting ready for celebrations on 14th July (Bastille Day) and there are a few marquees set up already.  No doubt it’ll get busy and noisy and I expect fireworks too like last year.  I wonder if they’ll ask motorhomes to leave, although this is a proper especially for these recreational vehicles.  I doubt we’ll be here by then, but I worry we might find it difficult to get a space wherever we go on such a popular national celebration.  We’re going to have to discuss this in a minute.

Tonight I am just cooking some marinated pork kebabs with spicy couscous and cherry tomatoes:  It’s just too hot to do anything else.


Adonis had caught a bream of about 1 1/4 lb!  Apparently this lake has loads of small fish and he’s going to try again later on this evening.

Walking and swimming the dog!
