Blog for the day:
Cav wins another stage!! Amazing. Today was a short day , thank god. We all needed it, even though we are. It tired, it was just nice to amble and get to town.

Not much to see, a couple of ruined chateaus and a few ghost towns, charming all the same. Found a lovely little bakery and got a nice snack. Everyone we meet seem nice and friendly.

Had a bag gut plus my back break was not working today, but found a great little shops which sold chainsaws and bikes! Perfect. We explored fourgeus which is an amazing old town with old fortifications etc.

Tonight at camp I christened bozzers tent chateau de Bosley. Saw a red squirrel running across the lawn, Ben wanted to wack it. Now we know why there are none left in Scotland.

Off out to eat in a mo. Nice camp ground and owners. When we got up to leave the previous one this morning, it was drizzling and raining again. It stayed dry after we left , around midday. Short day. Perfect. If only all days were like this. .
