Finally the rain has stopped!
We left a very waterlogged site and headed towards Lyon and "Camping des Barolles", thankfully the rain stopped on the way here and so far has not returned in any force!

We had only had 6 hours sleep and it was fair to say we were very tired. Around 9:15 we grabbed our croissants and fruit juices and set off. As I have previously said, pastries are really cheap here.
