After 80 kilometers and all that food, I slept really good. I woke up by the sun and the beatiful view infront of my tent. The morning tide made the scenery change once more.
After my morning shower, I started chatting with a French couple that pitched next to me. In the end they asked me to join them for some breakfast, as they were very well prepared with coffee, tea, croissants, breads, fruit and a lot more. I’d call that grand dejeuner rather than petit, but of course couldn’t complain as I had many kilometers to cycle again.
I cycled for about an hour through many coastal towns and in one of them I stopped to buy some supplies for a picnic. This time I rather than buying something ready, I got some bread, tomatoes, cheese and a big chunk of pate which I was looking forward to. Next stop was the nice coastal city of Granville. I found a nice spot by the beach where I had my little picnic.
After my lunch and my usual siesta, I started peddaling again to the south again. On the way I had to climp some of the steapest hills so far. Nothing like big mountains, but the continuing up and down in 32 degrees exausted me a little bit. I have to say though, that pate worked really well. Probable a lot better than any cycling food.=]
My plan was to get all the way to Le Mont Saint Michel, but 10km earlier I saw a camp site and gave up. It had wifi and a swimming pool so it seemed ideal. Also today I finished my first map and had to do the last section with a very basic tourist map, so tomorrow I’ll have to find a map for Britany.
