Day 2

Well, well, well!!! Now that was what I call a day!! Got lost a couple of times but plodded onwards in to what turned out to be quite a strong headwind which had the added bonus of driving the incessant rain in to my face!!! I’d never planned to go too far today because of the crossing but just couldn’t believe the conditions!! It culminated in arriving in a town that had the promise of 2 hotels where I could dry out and finding them both shut!! Not a campsite in sight either!! So with no other options I rolled up to the gendarmerie!! I eventually got to talk to a gendarme who despite the darkness and rain suggested that my best bet was to cycle another 20km to what he told me was the nearest open hotel and wished me ‘Bon Courage’ as I left!! To be honest the ride wasn’t so bad as the rain eased and I used my satnav as encouragement with its countdown!! So I am now holed up in a reasonable hotel and dry and warm but not very far up the road as the detour ended up taking me backwards too!? I have no fixed plans yet for tomorrow as thunderstorms are forecast so I will wait and see what the light of day holds!!! Thank you all for all your encouraging messages they truly keep me going!! Now it is definitely time to sleep!!! 🙂
