In this deferred timeline I have, we've made it to the Tour de France and the 14th of July. This year we drove an hour and a half or so up north and, it turns out, it was the first time I had dragged my parents to the middle portion of a stage and they were surprised to see that so many were already there before us, "in the middle of nowhere", about two hours before the caravane was supposed to arrive. I had to explain that in TdF terms, this wasn't the middle of nowhere - there were two small roads coming to this départementale close by!

And then we started out the traditional TdF stage watching by having a picnic and just sitting around, waiting for a couple of hours.

Then the caravane came and, boy oh boy, we had some of the worst kids standing next to us. They seemed to never have heard about sharing, they'd be at each other's throats all the time, and their parents weren't even trying to control them. And obviously they completely ignored the implicit boundaries of our picnic sitting area.

But hey, after the caravane, some more waiting!
