3rd September 2009

Poor Paul has come down with a cold so we want to find somewhere nice so he can rest for a couple of days to shake it off.  Wolfsmuhle was okay, but they only had a pitch available for one night anyway, so we packed up and moved onto the next site.

We stopped at a Lidl store for food and I needed the loo.  Unfortunately they didn't have one so we drove on and found a small store on an industrial estate which seemed to sell everything.  I bought some clothes pegs, teaspoons and a new dustpan and Paul got a little wheeled trolley for transporting the toilet cassette and water container. It's a real pain lugging them backwards and forwards on a campsite.  The price tag had come off so I told Paul to go back and get another one with a price tag.  He found one marked €1.49!  It should have been at least €5 and we have seen these trolleys for €15 and more, so we got a real bargain.

We found the next campsite right on the Neckar river but it didn't look very nice, not well looked after, so we headed on further down the river and finally found Camping Friedensbrucke.  It's in a nice location, we could get a boat from here into Heidelberg if we wanted, but the showers aren't too good.  They are clean enough, but there are about six individual booths side by side, it's unisex and the cubicles have opaque doors so you can see everything! Also there’s nowhere to leave your clothes and things inside the booth so you have to leave everything outside on the floor and when you get out you are completely on show.  I don’t think so!

Paul bought an internet access card from reception for €2 but we couldn't get any signal on our pitch so the man gave us our money back. We had dinner and watched TV.
