We've made it to France! We travelled down to Plymouth last night and stayed in a ropey hotel - very Faulty Towers! After checking in we were both a bit worried about the bikes on top of the car so went out to get them in the pouring rain and kept them in our room. When we got up this morning the rain was still going but we managed to put the bikes back on the car and get to the ferry port without any problems. Once we were on the ferry and had explored a bit we managed ...
... 8pm which often doesn't finish until 1030. By then I'm ready for a good night's sleep so I can do it all again the next day. So the break from cycling was good today, but it was still a full day :). This evening was lovely. We had a very nice dinner in town, along with some very good wines. On the way to the restaurant, we walked through the local artisans market selling some great stuff. I bought myself a ...

Our next stop was a cider maker where we watched a film about how they used to make cider and how they do it now - again in French but we managed to get the gist. Then ...
... St Jacques (chopped Scallops in a sauce) another taste sensation!!!
Followed by Pork (from a Piglet) and home made Frites made from potatoes from the garden and
carrots in an onion sauce. Followed by bread and cheese and strawberry cheesecake
thingy!!! Obviously each course accompanied by a different bottle of wine.
We returned to the hotel and that was it.
