So we spent 3 days at Lac des Varennes and very nice and hot it was too. We did a lot of swimming and I felt very proud of myself yesterday when I swam to the other side of the lake and back, which must be well over 100 meters altogether. It was so hot all I wanted to do was be in the water. Adonis tried fishing, but being school holidays, it was far too busy with swimmers, canoes, paddling boats, etc and he didn’t catch anything, although other people did. Still, we’ll go back in October when it’s quieter and better for fishing.
We left this morning at 10 and headed for Leclerc in Château-du-Loir and followed the D305, passed La Chartre-sur-le-Loir towards Troo, hoping to find a wild camping place by the river there, but access was blocked, so we continued to aire at Montoire-sur-le-Loir, but we didn’t like the location and tried this one instead, which is just perfect and has a free water tap and toilets.
We arrived just before lunch and we loved it. I took Bramble for a walk along the river bank and then Adon went for a swim with him too. We’re parked in front of the municipal campsite, by the tennis courts and park. It’s all very quiet, considering the location and there’s little traffic on the D9, which we followed and is right behind us.
I cooked Spaghetti Bolognese and it was lovely after so long not having it. It’s still very hot. Hope we’ll sleep well tonight,
