Weather: a warm morning followed by a hot afternoon, maximum 35C.
No rush this morning as we were both tired after a big day yesterday. Breakfast was served in the restaurant area - a light, bright room. It was a cold buffet, with quite a good choice of food. The pastries had just come out of the oven and were still warm - yum! There was a table of four disabled people and two carers dining here as well. This is the third occasion we have noticed ...

Back to the hotel and settle for the night - a short day riding tomorrow!
