Awaycation Summer 2024 - Day 20


With Reggie still off-colour we decided to go further towards Buchy. The vet is closed on a Sunday.

I checked on the Camping-Car Park site and found a newish aire near Honfleur. There is a huge one there but to get EHU you need to be the early bird to catch the worm. Not us.

I booked us into the CCP aire at La Rivière-Saint-Sauveur. From the photo it's near the Pont de Normandie when in fact it is very near the flyover on the A29 toll motorway leading to the Pont.

On the way we came off the motorway into Avranches as we wanted to get a few bits and pieces in the supermarket. Whilst Claire was in the shop I decided to top up, a part fill, of diesel as a rough calculation would mean with almost three days left before we were booked on the Shuttle that we might be running on fumes.

On the way to and from the Intermarche we had to go around Place Patton, named after the four star general George S Patton. There is a memorial and a tank near to the huge cathedral.


To say as times it was noisy? Yes. It quietened down late at night but kicked off again around 6am.

The aire has a resident guardian. A lone goose. He or she seemed quite sad calling out all the time and walking around the aire and to the sports fields the other side of the autoroute bridge.


We left Reggie in the Moho and had a walk into the village. Sunday. It was dodo dead....



It's only one night, and the noise wasn't too bad. Reggie had perked up a bit so we thought we see how he was in the morning.
