Égouzon-Chantôme/Cuzion, Tuesday 12th July 2011


Dramatic aire at Égouzon-Chantôme/Cuzion

It was really wet this morning and poured down for almost 2 hours from 7 am.  Adonis took Bramble for a walk, then we packed up and headed for Romorantin-Lanthenay and arrived at hyper Leclerc at 8.50, where we had to wait at the entrance sheltering from the downpour until opening time, mercifully only 10 minutes.

After doing our shopping, we took the D922 and D956 road to J11 at Levroux and joined the motorway A20 past Châteauroux until we got here (Cuzion) at a smashing aire that really isn’t an aire, but it’s very rural and it doesn’t look like it gets a lot of use.  It’s on a beautiful spot by the river Creuse, where we can swim, under some dramatic cliffs where some children were doing some rock climbing earlier and there is a lovely dog walk, as well as fresh water.  The sun is out and we are having a nice sparkling rosé on our own in the shade.  What more can you want?  Just lovely!


Adon and Bramble had a long swim in the river and I just took lots of pictures of them.  We’ve just spoken to Pepo, who is very happy in Portiragnes playing with Huntley, the new family dog, and his cousin Gabriel.

Tonight I am preparing a Caesar salad: the weather is just too hot for cooking.  This is the calm after the almighty storm this morning!
