    Camping De Corneuil 3

    July 14, 2016 in France ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    Woke to a lovely sunny day with only a scattering of clouds. Wasnt too hot around 20C so after an early brunch of sausage sarnies I went for a run. Covered 8.2 miles, probably 80% running 20% walking as there were some tough hills. Once again I barely saw a soul, only a couple of farmers cutting wheat. Passed by some beautiful small chateau's the french do seem to like their circular towers.
    I had a couple of beers in the bar afterwards to refresh myself. We had booked the Table d'hote fot dinner whch was served on a long table. There were approximately thirty adults and twenty kids on a separate table. Food was a lovely quiche followed by duck leg and ratatouille. Dessert being a chocolate sponge, some ice cream, strawberries and a macaroon. It was all washed down with a couple if caraffes of local vin blanc. We chatted the evening away with a very nice group of Dutch people, all in all a perfect dinner.
    Back to camp for a coffee, chocolate and brandy nightcap. An earlyish night for us all, I for one was just a little wobbly!
