I opened the door on my tent this morning and knew that today was going to be the day. 6 nearly 7 weeks and no rain. The sky was dark and looked like it could start at any time . I got ready quickly and packed my things to keep them dry. As it was it was 15 mins into the walking when the heavens opened. It’s been one of those days where it is pouring one minute and sunny the next. I must have put on and then removed my waterproofs 5 – 6 times.
It was however a very nice walk to Tonnerre. The canal made for easy navigation and in fact I really enjoyed walking in the rain. My kit is good and I was dry and happy walking along to Johnny Cash.
I made Tonnerre about 1600 and found ‘Carolines’ bed and breakfast no problem. Caroline herself is lovely and as well as giving me a fantastic place to stay has done my washing for me. I’m going to explore the town tomorrow which should be nice.
An early night beckons.
