After 400 miles we are here in sunny La Palmyre just north of Royan. We arrived via Guidel Plage, Quiberon and Carnac in Brittany.
Guidel is our usual first night as we can park right in the sand dunes. Our friend George has taken some fantastic photos of graffiti in Manchester and the artists here are pretty good!
With our appalling French we managed to buy a 'le Cube' gas bottle and a regulater.... Tim resorted to drawing a picture.....and it worked!
Quiberon was lovely for the weekend and a bike ride as it wasn't too busy. In fact everywhere seems very quiet compared to August.
Now at La Palmyre and this is what we have come for.....cycle tracks and a surf beach that goes on for miles, think I will wait till we are further south before I go in though.
Today is a bank holiday in France and so there have been a few more people on our normally empty beach.
Photos of Cote Sauvage and our over night stop. Next we are going south on the ferry from Royan.
