    The Left Bank is a lovely restraunt – it does a very good value lunch menu and the dinner menu is not that expensive.The next time you’re in Athlone you check out Le Chateux – little more expensive but very nice.

    I’ve really missed camping these past 2 years while I’ve dealt with my cancer. Sorry yours turned out so wet – I know the feeling of being engulfed in water at 2AM – it happened to us in the Hawkes Bay.

    Thanks for the tip, Auds – I’ll try to make my way to Le Chateaux the next time I’m camping in Athlone. I’ve been toying with the idea of camping next to restaurants around the country, like Dunbrody House and the Tannery and Heir Island Cottage, to try their menus without having to pay an arm and a leg to stay in the locality – essentially paying more for food than accomodation!I really enjoyed camping in New Zealand, Barbara, most of the sites around the country are well equiped – even the DOC ones – and in beautiful settings. Plus, if that’s your cup of tea, you can really get into the wilds! Hope you can get back camping at some stage soon in the future.
