... 20 kms along, we were asked to stop and asked about our duty free purchases, we told her and she said, "is that it" 2 bottles of gin and 2 rose wines, to which I replied, we are not big spenders!! Ok she said with a smile, you can go. With the mountains behind us, we arrive at our stop for the night, Mont -Louis an old garrison town, that is still used for training to this day as we found out when we tried to go in, a man came ...
... m and 5 a.m. Aussie Steve reported there were ten trucks and that he even saw a machine washing the dustbins out. (There may be some exaggeration here).
Every night there is to be an award of a cap and I won it on the first night due to my stoic suffering as my luggage was left behind at the hotel in Empuries and I had to miss aperitifs.
Decided to have a long day on the bike and try and make Andorra.
Now because its up in the mountains, didn't quite make it.
Lots of lovely bends to play with and some fabulous scenery,
Started to chuck it down as I went through this little village, so turned round and found somewhere to stay.
It was just a one street ...
... We then climbed the next two cols at 1099 m and 1256 m. At the bottom of those cols, Steve and Gilles decided that they had expended their gas tanks, so I went on to do the Col de Jau myself. I made it to the top at 5:30pm and had a nice run out to Prades. We had a dinner in a local pizza place which was excellent. I was so tired I could hardly see, and I do not think I was the only one.
... breathtaking views and white-knuckle, picturesque descents.
We arrived in Prades very late in the afternoon, but discovered when we went out and wandered this small village for dinner and drink that there was a town festival with music, dancing, a parade, and bonfire being held, so we had entertainment provided for our meal al fresco beside the town square.
