We both had good crossing over to France. We spent one day revisiting Le Treport and catching our breath. We then travelled three days back to back south and east to just west of Lyon (We had travelled just under 500 miles). This meant we were sufficiently south to have less concerns about the weather and could now start our explorations for the winter.
We arrived at the campground at Belbigny which was situated on the banks of the Loire River and intend to stay for four nights.
