A really heavy dew had left everything very wet outside. Putting on cold wet cycling shorts is an error I keep making, please remind me to take them in at night. We had the best pain aux raison by the bridge, reminded Polly of Tricia. Then cycled 23 miles non stop in gorgeous sunshine and scenery to La Charites sur Loire. Again we messed up and missed the shops for lunch so we had to eat out again, oh well! Met some fun, crazy cycling grandparents from New Zealand who invited us to stay when we get there. They have the right idea, they are cycling in a pack of 10 and have a van to carry all of their stuff! Polly said I have been grumpy today (she is putting it down to my bad knees). Reached Nevers and made a good decision to stay there even though we had only done 46 miles. Lovely lady at the campsite only charged a couple of quid to use the internet for what seemed like hours. The campsite by the river was beautiful, went over into town and found Carrefour, crisps meringues and omlettes for dinner, delicious (not in that order).
