Day 8 - Sunday Afternoon 17th November
We decided then to have lunch in the motorhome before heading South along the Meuse & into France to where the Semois river joins it from the East. It has been a pretty ride along the Meuse so hopefully the Semois river will be as nice as it takes us back into Belgium & across to Luxembourg. I think I got flashed by a speed camera somewhere along the way. I had been drifting along admiring the scenery with the cruise control set at 35mph well below the usual speed limits but I must have missed a 30mph sign somewhere as I caught a flash as we passed some houses. Stupid SatNav never warned about it!
We stopped the night at a lovely free Aire in Bogny Sur Meuse still in France right down by the river. It was late afternoon by the time we got there but we had enough daylight left to do a it of exploring around the town. We came across signs pointing up the hill to “ Les Quatre Fils Aymon” so off we went to see what was there. After slogging our way all the way up to the top we came to a park with a big statue on a mound overlooking the town below. It was there commemorating a medieval tale about four brothers & a magic horse.
It was getting dark by then so we hoofed it back down the hill to the motorhome for dinner & a warm up. It has been fine but cold all day. No life anywhere in the village so another night in with our faithful TV & books.
