Well, chalk off the first full day of this trip, we are rolling!
I’m pleased to report that the weather was largely kind to Harley and I, after a really dodgy looking start. Roscoff to Rennes was mixed, a bit damp now and then, but OK. I opted to take the Autoroute towards Nantes, by Bain de Bretagne we needed fuel and food and also that’s when it decided to rain like a firehose; for thirty minutes whilst I had lunch.
I turned to cut cross country via Chateaubriant, cos I’d never been there and that was a good enough reason. It’s an interesting place, a bit rundown but has a great Chateau, fascinating old Post Office and really cool Glass Theatre, et voila pictures:
From Chateaubriant we followed the D163 to Cande, where I had to grab a pic of this old windmill.
We continued to Bauge where I had a special job to do; more details in another post. After that we headed south and picked up the Loire which we followed and eventually crossed near Bourgueil. The river is more swollen than I have ever seen at this time of year. Grabbed a quick pic to show you!
Total miles today: 344.
You up for some more tomorrow and get on the tail of Bond and Goldfinger?
I got an open road and a restless soul.
