So I awoke a little later than normal to persistent rain. I was pretty tired and just couldn't be bothered to get moving - especially in the rain. I decided to have a day off and do some chores.
I went to reception and paid for another night. Fortunately, this campsite is one of the cheaper ones I've stayed at!
I then got all my clothes (except what I was wearing!) and bunged them in a washing machine in the laundry room. I also put my phone on charge in there (no moving bike, so no charging phone!) and sat down to read whist the machine did its stuff.
I then had to endure an endless stream of British and Dutch campers asking me to show them how to operate the machines. Now, I'm neither good at washing machines or French instructions, but even I could work out: Put washing in. Put powder in. Select temperature. Put money in. Press Allez. One Dutch woman couldn't even open the door and it would seem she had never set eyes on a washing machine before in her life. At least I was kept entertained if away from my book.
Once done, I gave what could be tumble dried a quick blast and hung the rest on my tent to dry. The sun had come out by this time BTW!
I was really bored by this point and seriously considered packing up and moving on. I probably would have had time to get to the next campsite, but I didn't want to push my luck, so decided to stay put and get off promptly tomorrow morning.
The sun was really blazing by now, so I settled down with my kindle for an afternoon of reading and trying to smooth out some of my ridiculous tan lines!
The afternoon flew by and all my stuff was dry, so I packed it all away, went for a shower and put nice clean clothes on!
I've got a bit of time to kill before dinner, so will have a bit of an explore now. If my dinner excites me sufficiently, I shall take some pics :-)
