Just a beautiful red light. Sometimes you just have to wait in France, for no reason

After breakfast we hook up the caravan and leave for Fécamp on the coast near Le Havre. (but caravanning folks know where Fécamp is. In Paris it was advised as a nice camping, our neighbours in Marçon came up with Fécamp, and on our first stop, we chatted with a couple: they had been there and would advise on going there).

I program Eva to take the fastest road, without toll, but she keeps trying to take the toll road. (Yes I need a new map, but no, they are not made for Tom Tom 6, you need to upgrade to one of their newer models):

Anyway, after some time following signs to ‘Le Havre’ and ‘Pont de Normandie’, I gave Eva a second chance, she took willingly.

So after a while driving on local roads (there were no toll roads to take if you had wanted to) Eva brought us to a river and said: ”after 300 metres, take the ferry”.

The ferry

We lined up at 14:15h, and look at he picture: we were lucky (this is so in contradiction with my firm believe that there is no coincidence!) to cross, and for free too.

So we ended up on this Camping municipal de Reneville in Fécamp, thanks to Eva:)

The receptionist (in French): “Ah, you are Dutch, you know where everything is, you want to be up high, near the sanitary building, hein?!” Yes we did, so now we are on a high place, overlooking the bay and rocks. We have a stunning view, and we have the (pebble stone) beach within a 10 minutes walking distance (the way back up takes some more time:)

We have received a ‘carte d’hôte 2009’ with tips and benefits for activities during our stay. We cannot wait to go and find out:)

And now a beer? No, no beer! A Panaché (lemonade with beer, packed and sold in the same boxes like they sell beer in, to fool tourists:) no problem, if only I can have my yoghurt.
