... to push it along, past the limestone walls. After a few minutes you leave the boat for a guided walk around another section of the caves. We weren't able to take photos, so if you have a couple of spare minutes have a look at images on the internet.
After lunch at a nearby restaurant we headed back towards Beaulieu, stopping at the Intermarche. This was a one-stop place outside of town, with a supermarket, where had the only people serviing, and in the grounds ...

I can’t say I really cook, just warm up things but it’s good enough. We will focus on the food as we move along and stay in towns where it is quick and easy to get to a restaurant.
