Awake to another sunny day in France!
I skipped breakfast at the campsite as I’ve now run out of gas for my stove. So I cycled a bit until I found an open café, and breakfast turned out to be a coffee and a packet of crisps.
I spotted this true French classic rotting in a field.
I cycled past Sancerre with its large south-facing slopes filled with vines.
Lunch was some pasta in a mushroom sauce which was just a supporting act for the star of the show:
One area that I went through had been transformed with lots of art installations amongst the trees.
Cycling was pretty straightforward today, mainly following the river, and not straying from the Eurovelo route too often.
Hay stacks here are the same as everywhere else and not the kind in Monet’s paintings.
I’m now in chateau country and have seen a few already this afternoon.
I reached my destination town around 6pm, and headed what Google maps lead me to believe was a campsite but it turned out to be a shop. My plan B was a campsite 10km away, but as I started heading for that I stumbled across another much closer.
I checked in and set up the tent. There’s a small snack hut here which was open so I had dinner there. Also pleased to report this campsite has loos with toilet seats and toilet paper! Happy days.
Pouilly-sur-Loire to Sully-sur-Loire, 111 km. Total so far = 2,971 km.
