This would be the last day of 43 days on the road. It will be 100% highway and still need lots of attention. I had to have 3 “pit-stops” to make it mentally. At the end of the day homecoming was sweet.
I was lucky with my parking again. It was free until 09:00 a.m. I could drive to the free area in the attached sector. Then: Cycling to town.
What a stunning place at the Atlantic Ocean.
I asked in a coffee shop at the harbor for internet. A rather unfriendly male “no”. Next door was restaurant with two charming ladies, and I received a friendly “of course”, you are welcome… I sat down and updated “time-travel.net” as well as Facebook. This time only “teasers” on FB with cross reference to my website.
Time has come to head east towards home. I found a fuel stations with reasonable prices near La Rochelle and all was set.
Snacks anywhere on route eastwards.
Tremendous weather movements.
Evening in the Auvergne.
Searching and finding quite and free parking near a church.
Long distance driving is a different ball game compared to sight seeing on the bike 🙂
I must remind you, that I looked for parking late at night and tried my luck in that area. What a blessing to be safe.
I always was fascinated about Neolithic monuments. Stonehenge in the Salisbury Plains is pulling me again and again like a magnet. I felt quite some excitement again heading for Carnac.
It is difficult to say the least to describe the impression with a few pictures. There are 6 fields of stone rows over 4 km. There is a monument of a scale which can only be absorbed by walking it completely up and down. Which I did not, only two of them. There were always tombs involved, so the thoughts are it represents a message of the transition from life to the after life.
Near Carnac is a the a semi island and at the far end the village of Quiberon. Unfortunately the weather was playing games with me so the no of spectacular pictures was limited 🙂
Bad weather, good dining.
After a late lunch I headed for Nantes and found Camping de Nantes. A very recommendable location.
