French Letter (21)

A Road Less Travelled
'A French Letter'

Saint Aubin de Pouancè

2nd of June 2016

The weather is much improved today and we have an ever growing laundry basket. The French seem to go the extra mile when providing local services. Outside the Super U supermarket - is what could be described as a street laundrette. Located inside what looks like a open fronted 'glass' bus stop which contained two washing machines and a hot air dryer. One machine is intended for a 8kg load the other is for a 18kg load. The hot air dryer holds a 8kg load. So its possible to wash and dry an 18kg load for just €5 (4) However, you supply your own powder and softener. So today, we did the usual personal laundry plus the whole of the motorhome bedding . Which was washed and dried and we were on our way again in about an hour.

There are reports on the news of flooding in central France. The river Seine has exceeded its previous 1910 flood water level. The river is still carrying a lot of additional water upstream in the watershed. The weather has started to improve, and there are blue patches beginning to show through.
