Unfeasibly hot all day. Managed a run before breakfast and then we both swam in a leisure park lake. Emma didn't get too far though, the sight of a fish proved a little too much. Fish, in a lake?

We did a lot of logistical stuff taking on food, water and fuel which made it a long day in spite of it being a shortish drive to where we are now in one of my favourite parts of France. Chocolate-box villages in spectacular countryside right in the very north eastern corner.

Hoping to do a bit of early-morning bird watching tomorrow while Emma goes out on the bike - then heading into Germany.

Truck going well apart from an old problem with the indicator relay sticking (thought that was cured) and the fridge having to work much harder than I'd like (28° on truck at 23:30).
