Lac de Caniel @ Cany- Barville (cracker)

IMG20230519135025.jpg
For those following the journal (s) will realise we feel we made a huge error in judgement going to St Valery en Caux last night.
Well the place got worst if that is possible. We had made arrangements with our french close neighbours that they would move over slightly giving me a tad of angle to work with. The time was set for after our 2nd coffee. That went even better when the other neighbours moved out giving enough room to get out with only one adjustment and no damage.
But then you have to go out the one way system !!!!! We thought it was just about OK on the way in (2 vehicles had to reverse for us) but this is tight. There are 3 cars parked on the right then 3 cars parked on your left. It tight but doable at 5 mph.....until you find there is an extra vehicle not parked in the bays. We followed out a 6 m Luton which manoeuvred away from us but we had an A class behind us and we left it so far behind at the 4 car slalom we are unsure if it got through.
We actually rang up DFDS to see if we could get on a ferry today after this debacle but they could only sort out overnight for 50 quid and much as the wife wants to do babysitting for grumpchildren, I won't be paying that out.
So we looked for an aire and found an apparent new one at Lac de Caniel. 10 marked out dedicated MH bays with space and an overflow apparently preferred by most 50 yards away.
Literally next to lake which has teleski, bowling petanque cycleway walkway, paddle board hire and not one but 2 luges !! What a stunning place. No swimming though. Aire is free. All it needs for us to be happy is a voie verte and some pretty villages.
So we set off on a cycle route and it turns into a voie verte !!!!! 7 Kms of dedicated cycle path to Veulettes sur Mer with its front of restaurants and huge 8 euro Aire and services extra with the wind blowing. So after our baguette ham and 99 cent cherry tomatoes from the Carrefour in Cany we headed back on a different voie verte away from the wind. Going through the lovely village of Vittefleur and it's 10thC church which is not so horizontal now. Richard 1 had something to do with it as well.
Cycled up to Cany and then saw cyclists up on a bridge. Get the mapy.cz out and it's confirmed we have a disused railway line voie verte as well !!!! This place just keeps giving. So we cycled up to that just to do a quick 10kms and return and we found beautiful tarmac and slight gradient with families using it. Definite revisit to this voie verte from one of our new favourite Aires.
Back to the town and it was very isle sur la sorgue but without the river running round and less watermills
Lovely day for our 33rd Anniversary.

And probably the end of updates on this journal following on from the Languedoc one.

Currently Austria (Carinthia) and Germany is the cunning plan for next month (for a month again) where a journal is likely again
