I was disturbed in the middle of the night by a hurricane. Well, it was bloody windy anyway! It was quite bizarre, it just came from nowhere and then disappeared again in the morning.
Despite that, I was up pretty early and on the road by 08:45.
It was all pretty straightforward - I just followed the road along the coast. Well, just inland from the coast.
I made good progress and stopped at about 10:30 for something to eat. I got a huge baguette filled with ham, cheese, egg and salad. I scoffed that and carried on.
I went through St Jean de Monts and had a little stroll on the beach. All I remember from 30 years ago was that it was massive. It still is! Huge expanse of sand and an inviting sea. I didn't go in as it was miles out!
I followed a cycle route right along the coast for a bit, which was really good.
After that, I nibbled a few miles off by cutting inland.
I then pressed on for a long time just putting in the miles. I went through Sables d'wotsit then got back on the coastal cycle path.
There were loads of campsites, but I had one in mind that I liked the look of in Jard. What I hadn't taken into account was that I had to go all around a bit of sea that irritatingly cut into the land.
By the time I got to Jard, I was so hungry that I just had to stop for some food to keep me going until dinner. I bought three pain au chocolate and smashed them straight down. I could've eaten 10 of them, but I needed to save room for dinner!
Reinvigorated, I found the site really easily. It is very nice situated as it is in woodland. Loads of those massive pine cones everywhere!
I am now down at the harbour having dinner. I had Moules frites followed by ice cream which was all very good.
If the bar at the campsite has Wee Fee, I will upload today's photos...
