Thursday 10th June
Left Avanton today and head down to St Emilion, near to Bordeaux. Quite a straightforward drive down the N10 for 156km and then turned off onto another quieter road to St Emilion for about another 60k.
Arrived around 2pm at a very nice site in the middle of miles of vineyards. Nicely laid out site in amongst trees. More Dutch and English people than anyone else again it seems. I watched the cycling again, which actually went past one of the places we stayed last year and hope to visit again on this trip to. Suitably inspired I went out for a bike ride before dinner. Was hard work because it was all up and down and very strong winds, plus I wasn’t sure where I was going. I managed to find my way back thought after about 20 miles. I could tell I hadn’t been on the bike for a few days. Must do better in future!!
Had dinner outside under the trees with a fortifying glass of wine and now relaxing and typing this. Have to stop now as someone is getting annoyed by the incessant tapping. I must do better and keep this up to date daily all ready for posting when I can get an internet connection.
I hope the SMS posts are getting through to Twitter. Unfortunately I cant see them until I get a wifi connection.
