    RONCE LES BAINS - SOULAC SUR MER 56 km

    September 27, 2017 in France

    It was slightly misty this morning so, as the bike had been out over night, we started off with damp saddles. The sun was soon up and we had a lovely route on smooth tarmac through the pine forest but close to the sea. We had a brief stop to look at a light house before cruising into La Palmyre for coffee on the sea front. We set off along the promenade passing through some smart seaside towns, most with beautifully sandy bays. There were plenty of grand nineteenth century houses which we imagined had sprung up when these towns became popular with the arrival of railways. We eventually reached Royan and headed for the ferry across the Gironde. Pippa, a British Velodysee rider came and chatted to us and we all commented on how few Brits we had actually encountered on the route. When we reached the other side the route took us through pine forest again alongside a rail track which nowadays has a tourist steam train running on it in the season. Pippa joined us for a picnic and we all continued to exchange travel yarns as cyclists do!

    We reached Soulac sur Mer and found it very strange that most of the houses in the Main Street looked like old railway station - the town must have developed around the railway. On the sea front there is also a Statue of Liberty which is in honour of a Frenchman who sailed out to America a year after La Fayette and contributed to America obtaining independence.

    We struggled to find our chambre d'hote as there didn't seem any logic to the street numbering system but eventually checked in and after a shower returned into town to have another delicious fish meal in The Station 1900 restaurant!

    Another very WET day of cycling, and another lesson learnt. So it's a public holiday here in France, and there is NOTHING open (much the same on Sunday's). Going to have to restock with provisions in the morning for the next leg.

    Soulac-sur-Mer

    August 24, 2016 in France

    OK ich will hier bitte sterben.
    Der wohl schönste Stellplatz unserer Reise. Direkt am Meer. Es ist warm...es ist Sommer...La vie est bien...würde ich ständig reisen wäre dies definitiv einer meiner Wahlorte. Ein kleines schnuckeliges Dörfchen mit Mainstreet und den typischen französischen Cafés, Strassenkunst und bombastischem Eis.
