Portsmouth yesterday was a bit of a reminder of how unequal Britain has become around the port tatty and people begging and then through an underpass into an area of very smart shops and restaurants for the haves.
Anyway the ferry delivered us to Le Havre this morning. Trains to Rouen but the next to Serquigny was late due to cow on track. However in Serquigny they kept the next train waiting for us… Very kind of them and all the passengers delayed on our behalf
The cycle South from Conches en Ouche to Ferte Vidame where we ate camped was lovely, warm, big skies mature forests old timbered houses and cornfields. Cassoulet for supper.
We all say hi from book club. Enjoy your trip and take your time to enjoy everything. Good to see the bikes outside a boulangerie! We are reading ‘all the birds singing by Evie Wild !
Thanks for the cal I have found where you are which is nice.
Am hungry so will get supper.
Very exciting tennis. Murray lost – beaten by the Japanese, Nishikori
I can remember going to Newquay when they would keep the train waiting – and later how cross we used to be when they didn’t – in the interests of efficiency!
