Awaycation Summer 2024 - Day 17

Rain. More Rain.

The worry. Reggie seems a lot better than yesterday and could walk past grass without wanting to eat any. He was also more "alive". Thankfully.

We were away reasonably early. Today the target was a campsite on the Dronne river to the north east of Bordeaux. I booked it through Pitchup and the booking looked successful.

We stopped firstly at the bakery not far from Laruns. Bread and a couple of pain raisin...

It was supposed to be about 230 Kms. To speed things up for the first time on this trip, I switched the "no tolls" setting off. We then plugged away on a few autoroutes.

Lunch near Mont Marsan. We finally worked our way to St Aulaye as we crossed the river we could see it was overflowing the banks. The guy at the site showed us the water creeping up towards reception. After six days of rain!!! So that was that. Our next two days would need reworking.

I booked a Camping-Car Park Aire at Jarnac-Champagne. And here we are.

We are on the last gravel pitch. Each space delimited by bushes. Each space is supposed to be two pitches. It seems this has been too much for many of the users on this site! Parked in the middle, or trailing power leads blocking access. It's all too common on Aires.

Where to tomorrow? It's the weekend, Friday. So many of the coastal sites and aires are fully booked.
