Camping Gritt – day 2.

June 1st 2017

This is a good quality camp site, each pitch is flat and generous in size, most come with electric hook ups, our pitch over looks the River Sure with its swans and ducks, last night there was even someone fly fishing. The facilities are first class, obviously very new, toilet and shower blocks cannot be faulted. The cost per night is 23 euros but we had it for 19 euros as we are ACSI members.

This morning we walked to Diekirch, the route from the campsite is along the river that runs in front of Homer, the path is paved and super smooth, superb for walking and cycling, a part of the walk passes through a memorial park which has 13 granite columns and on each one is a metal plaque showing the suffering of the locals during the second world war. Just past that a new footbridge had been constructed and a part of the river diverted to make a water course for canoeing.

Diekirch looks a prosperous town, we enjoyed a walk around its pedestrianised streets and then sat and had a coffee, we walked back a slightly different route and called in at Lidl to stock up again with some essentials. Altogether I would estimate we walked five miles. It is again as it has been every day since we left home very sunny, the current temperature is 29 degrees.

We spent the afternoon on domestic duties, firstly sorting out some of the items in Homer, we have decided there are a few small items we will leave behind in future, we try to keep the weight down. I’ve tightened a few screws in the locker/cupboard doors as they seem a little loose, the interior vibrates considerably on rough roads. We have a long journey tomorrow and will pack up this evening so that we can get off early.

Access to the internet is very difficult, at most sites you have to sit near reception/ bar, maybe a cunning plot to get you to have a drink whilst you wait 30 mins plus to get downloads, phone signals haven’t been too good either, I’m contemplating buying a gizmo you fix to the roof which boosts the signal and allows access to a number of devices.
