... to a beautiful day. Still, warm and sunny so after breakfast we set off along the coastline on our bikes to Arcachon. It's all very beautiful with the beach running the distance and the locals and people of Bordeaux making the most of a beautiful Sunday. Many were already on the beach sunning themselves. We rode about 18 km to get to the end of the cycle lane till you can ride no more and its certainly a playground to enjoy the beach scene. ...

It's so liberating not knowing what you are going to be doing or seeing tomorrow and it gives a real buzz in the morning. I do know what I'm going to be doing tomorrow however, because I'm here for 2 nights so more aquatic antics I suspect. Night night all - new Goverment in the morning!
