It's Not Magic, It's Work!

02 Jun 2016

Spring Holiday 2016 (Days 03/04)

Today we left our very nice B&B under a cloud - a dirty big rain cloud. Breakfast was fantastic, with loads of lovely Normandy rice pudding called Teurgoule. Though the weather threatened all day it didn't actually rain on our cycle ride to Saint-Lô.

Today's cycle ride was very much a mixture, with some more Voie Vert, some regular road and some river path way. The road section was good for a change but it was very up and down, so there was plenty of climbing and decent today!

At Tessy-sur-Vire we stopped to get dinner. Like every where else there is a certain Tour de France fever! We eventually made it to our B&B and though a bit spartan it was clean and functional so everything was okay. There was th first CRT TV I've seen in quite a while, but it worked okay, which is what matters!

  • Total distance today: 92.49 km
  • Total cumulative distance: 265.80 km
  • Pictures of the day: Wrong turn?

Breakfast was a bit more spartan like the B&B, but the jam was still good and there were plenty of carbs to go round in the bread.

After yesterday's rather long and in some places hilly stage today was a fraction shorter and was just undulating rather than hilly. We arrived at our B&B in Portbail, after a mostly cool and windy day but thankfully no rain. Now that we are on the coast and close to Jersey we can get British TV on the TV in the B&B!

  • Total distance today: 87.67 km
  • Total cumulative distance: 353.48 km
  • Pictures of the day: Unlucky for some?
