La Mailleraye sur Seine. Tigers?

Neufchatel-walk

After an early(ish) walk along the cycle track we set off for La Mailleraye sur Seine, a delightful aire on the south bank of the Seine, between Rouen and Le Havre.

This is the aire, only for motorhomes with good brakes. €5 per night. Great for boat anoraks…… all sorts of craft chug up and down in front of you.

If Keith is to be believed there are tigers a few hundred yards east of here, in a compound, we are heading off shortly for a look and hopefully some photographic evidence. But I’m getting ahead…

Cycling west, there is a good view over the Seine to Caudebec en Caux, maybe familiar to any Boudin followers out there.

Cycling inland, there are many lovely old French thatched cottages,

And even some thatched walls (???)

We headed back to La Mailleraye via a roadside bar that Keith spotted …cue emergency stop stop and pile in for vin blanc and une presion de biere.

In the evening we feasted in the local restaurant on pate, cold sausage and pork in a caper sauce……cosmique.
