Today we had a 20.1km climb at 5.5%. It was overcast but thankfully the rain held off until we were arriving at the campsite. Our SPOT tracker has died today, so unfortunately shows us still in Guilestre! We plan to carb load now as have a huge day tomorrow up the Cime de la Bonette (2802m), a 23.1km climb at 6.5%. Yikes. Also saw our first sign to the finish line in Nice ...

We drove on for around 30km to get to our next site 'il Melo' a Bonny spot on the outskirts of a little town. We're the only campers here, there are ...
... but on going in we see a few flies crawling in the cabinet and high tail it out! On to the next place, but before we get to the main town there is a Bunnings-looking place with a large cafe. That'll do, we decide. Well, what a surprise! A lovely young waitress who had great English. Even though the kitchen was closed, she went and found out what was left from lunch specials so we had choices other than toasted sandwiches. I had a braised finnocchi (fennel) which was just ...
