Blog for the day:
Ok we are at faulty towers, well, the campsite equivalent. What a 'mare! So we left out nice hotel this morning for a day of climbing down a little turn up more then down a little bit and turn up further again. So they were not that hard, in that, not steep. So I just span up easily. Nothing as hard as cheddar George. The towns were ok but there were not many to go through. The one which sticks out the most was Gruzon? which had a huge flee market with people selling all kinds of crap and nice food. Just before that ben and me popped in to a antique market warehouse. Loads of fantastic stuff!!

More crazy drivers again which we all near misses with. Huge baguette the size of a salmon! Lucky that it was Bastille day as the logging plants and stone quarries were closed, so we didn't have those heavy trucks to deal with. The temperature was cold and I ended up wearing two coats towards the end. The wind was ok, mainly a tail wind.

There was something I wanted to write about the French again, but I forget again.

So now we are eating in this 80s retro Eurotrash "restaurant" "bar". It has to be seen to be believed. It could be run by some aging pop stars! At least it is better than the camp ground. The menu is salad salad and salad. But lucky Phil got some special meat! I think he had scored
