Saturday 30th June. Digoin. A lovely day’s gentle cycling along the canals that were a bit more interesting than yesterday.
But first a comment on last night and where I was staying at http://lepontdelaloire.com . This was a lovely Chambres D’Hotes and Samuel took pity on a Round the World Cyclist and invited me to join them for their family meal. A typical French family meal , 3 generations plus friends. Boeuf Bourgingon, in Bourgogne, local wines and cheese. All cooked by grand-mere. With lots of rapid fire French conversation. Absolutely delightful. Where have I come across that before? Lauriane Gamain.
Christian Grellet a welcome like yours.
Arriving at the Hotel du Rond Point Digoin everyone was getting excited in the bar/restaurant watching the France vs Argentina match.
Coming down later for dinner there has been an accident just outside the restaurant, at the rond-point. Police and ambulance service in attendance. Cars rather than cyclists involved.
Rest day tomorrow. A proper rest day as this is a very small town.
