We are up early and after putting up the tent it’s off to the camp site shop for breakfast!
Today we pass la Roche d’Oëtre and the Gorges de la Rouvre. Quite an interesting geological feature so we go and check it out. Coffee time to by the way!
Near Lisieux, we spot the sign to a German and an Allied cemetary next to each other. We’re intrigued because usually they are more spread out so we go and have a look. And indeed, the 2 cemetaries are just a mere 20 metres apart. Apparently, they have been connected by an ‘alley of peace’ somewhere in the early noughties.
Both cemetaries remind us again of the impact decisions made by very few can have on so many lives.
We ride on and by late afternoon we start searching for a camp site. The gps indicates one at Lyons la Fôret. It seems good enough a location so we go and check it out.
The camp site is nice and pretty and very close to the village.
So off to dinner it is!
We end up at this nice and cosy little restaurant and we enjoy one of the best meals of the past few camping trips. The restaurant also doubles up as a shop for local specialties and tea, so we end the evening with a delicious cup of tea and we even get to take some home!
It’s only when we are back outside that we notice all the awards on the door from Michelin, Gault Millau and others. Wow, that explains a lot!
