France, an interlude

We headed from Brittany to the Auvergne, and had decided to break the journey in two and spend one night in the Loire valley on the way. Just as well - with the cold nights in Brittany, the tent was still quite wet with dew in the mornings and it was a while before it was dry enough to take down.
For our one-nighter in Azay-le-Rideau we used our little 3-man tent and did no more cooking than simply making coffee on the single-ring camping gas. We stayed in the municipal campsite right on the river, a lovely peaceful setting.
The castle is being restored and was swathed in wraps, but the town was lovely.

  1. I love the geometry of all those roof lines and such beautiful flowers. That fountain is cute and scary at the same time. What a peaceful setting.
