Garry McGivern’s European bike ride, Sunday, 4th-September-2022, in Bray-sur-Seine. I decided to stay put today for no particular reason apart from being lazy. Anyway, Sundays are always a bad day to find supplies, for the evening, as in beer.
All the shops tend to close on a Sunday, apart from some supermarkets that open for a few hours in the morning. And if I want to guarantee myself of having a beer at night, I have to buy it early and lug it around all day. But apart from the pain of stocking up early. I quite like the fact that everything closes. It’s just how it used to be in the UK. But of course, we’re too commercialised now!
I went to the little restaurant next to the campsite last night, and what another great place it was. A small family-run business that takes care of its service and product, over profit. Where have all those places gone back home? Oh yes, they’ve all closed down because of the big chains.
There’s not really a lot to say about today. I went out first thing to the supermarket before they closed. Went to an ATM to get some cash. And had a little ride around Bray-sur-Seine, and that was about it. The rest of the day, I spent lazing around the campsite, drinking beer. Although I have been looking at the map to see where I could go. But nothing sprung to mind without having to cycle huge distances.
