Here I am, what to do now?
Ok, so here I am, I didn't wake up until about 10:00 this morning. I figured I would have a lazy day today, I've had some breakfast, a couple of pots of coffee & then I thought I would see if the sat-nav would find the local McDonalds. It was listed in the POIs so I thought I would come along, write a bit on here, read my emails & generally take the piss by sitting here for ages using the wifi.
The weather is much better today, but up here in the north it always seems to be windy.
I plan to leave Cambrai tomorrow morning, I'm heading towards Rouen. It's going to be a long leg to my overall journey, but I've promised some English camp-site owners in the Loire Valley that I will do some electrical work for them in return for a couple of nights camping. I've figured I've got 6 nights before I've got to be there, so tonight in Cambrai, then either 2 or 3 nights in a site near Rouen, then another 3 or 2 nights on another site near some place I've forgotten right now, but I will obviously update whenever I can.
I must say, the site here at Cambrai is very nice, but it's a town site, so there's traffic noise all night. My next site is more rural, which will suit me better. But the Cambrai Municipal site would make a very good overnight stop-over for anyone on their way to or from either Calais or Dunkirk, there's even a vet nearby, for those with pets that require the pet passport treatment.
So it's off to Rouen tomorrow, I just hope the weather gets better, it hasn't rained yet today, but the sky's been threatening this afternoon & I wouldn't be surprised if we have some by nightfall.
Let's hope I have a bit more to report the next time I update this blog, for now; here's another picture, take care.
