So since the last post we made the drive from Ile de Re to Biscarosse. Nothing much to report on the drive just that due to the French heading south as well the roads were quite busy in places. We arrived at one campsite and Jim went off in a golf buggy to check out the available pitches, they were a no go so we went to the next campsite down the road.

We had a nice opening ride today. about 110kms of flat country. While it was nice to cycle on the flat, it was a bit boring. A lot of it could have been in eastern Ontario with fields of corn and soy. We did see mounded crops which I thought were asparagus, but apparently are some sort of fruit, the name of which I did not recognize. You will see pictures of ...
