Neufchatel…Two Hens in a Hole

NOB-Station

On Sunday we drove to Neufchatel en bray, a small town about 30 km SE of Dieppe. We stayed at Camping Ste Claire, a well kept and friendly site, popular with migrating Brits.

10 yards from the site entrance is the avenue verte, a cycleway stretching from the coast at Dieppe to Forges les Eaux. Sunday afternoon was spent peddling/running towards Dieppe. We went about 10 miles then turned back as the first black clouds appeared. We got back just as the heavens opened and watched the lightning from the safety of the cab.

The bike ride was great, a gentle cruise through the French countryside. Generally the dogs run ahead of us, clearing our path of any other pedestrians or cyclistes, but every few km or so they get a rest in the dogcart.

Fellow Travellers

We asked one of the walkers whether it was a pilgrimage and she told us it was a ‘Walk with Donkeys’. Obvious really.

The cycleway is on the course of an old railway and this is the old station at Mesnieres en Bray.

    What will you take for those chiens Madame? Terrier Tartare is a great delicacy around here!

    That was Cruel Vegan Dyl by the way, not me.

    Clearly he is saying (in an accent of your choosing) “Ah Madam, why do you always leave the country when ‘The Great British Bake Off begins?’
    She responds “Because Paul – you have gone off after some American floozy and I need to teach you the error of your ways, you naughty boy”
    What would Mary say?!!!!!?
