Sancerre to Souppes-sur-Loing

Bonjour et bienvenue 😀

We seemed to keep leap-frogging the hotel boat Horizon 2 for the next few days and every time we passed it was like meeting old friends. The American passengers were particularly friendly and said what a good time they were having, although one of the men did tell Roger that if he had to go and see another "bloody chateau" he'd scream!

The last time we met them was at Rogny-les-Sept Ecluses. A now disused staircase of 7 locks that reminded me of Foxton Locks back in the UK

Our next major stop was at Chatillon-Coligny where we spent the weekend while we celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary. We don't normally go out for evening meals but as it was a special occasion we booked and went to Le Coligny for their gourmet special.

5 courses each with matched wines and including a champagne cocktail, champagne with dessert and coffee was only 65 euros each. I really don't know how they manage it as back in UK it would have been at least twice the price. Roger was very happy as every time he emptied his glass they came back with re-fills. Needless to say we waddled home 😄

The next day we used the bikes to do 2 trips to the supermarket to re-stock the cupboards and freezer and then in the afternoon we visited the local car museum. Bizarrely the main exhibit was a whole room full of British cars.

Internet reception has continued to be very poor (Free mobile) but seems to be improving again as we get further North. The weather is HOT and we've had several storms. Last night's was really spectacular with simultaneous thunder and lightning and an absolute deluge that flooded the Camping Car park beside our mooring.  It's still 29'C at 6pm and it's so heavy I'm pretty sure we'll have another storm later.  The storms don't bother us and luckily now that Chico is going deaf they don't seem to bother him either. The only "downside" is that the torrential rain blocks the satellite TV signal and it's Grand Prix weekend again. 

That's all for now, see you soon 😀
