Lunch stop yesterday by the River Eure near Louviers, and now that I can afford to eat, it was a proper celebration lunch stop: I splashed out one and a half Euros on a bottle of rough vin rouge and ate a whole Camembert!
The journey from Rouen to Chartres yesterday was made more complicated by another panic about the Catholicism Pure & Simple blog (it seem less simple than we make out…) So I had to make a detour of quite a long way, looking for internet access, without success, adding another twenty miles onto a one hundred mle journey. I arrived in Chartres at 2.30 am, shattered and hardly able to cycle up the last hill.
At the presbytery I managed to get a pilgrim stamp in my credencial this time, and that too was a good discovery: a proper pilgrim stamp is available here.
For the rest of my blog from Chartres, please see the post on Catholicism Pure & Simple called “Notre Dame de Chartres changed my life”
Tomorrow I continue south towards Bonneval.
