No rain and no flat tires. It was a glorious day! Either our luck is changing or we’ve started setting the bar really low.
We camped near Blois last night and chose a near site on the other side to allow lots of time in the city today. I wanted to see the old town and Laura wanted to see the Magic museum.
When we got to the campground it was so hot that our stuff dried in minutes of sitting in the sun. Amazing how something can seem so impossible one moment, and then be done the next. Our stuff had all been wet for dayyyys!
We took a ‘Rhonda Detour’ today - Ann’s first. We missed a turn to stay on the paved trail and ended up doing a few km down a really rocky dirt trail. It seemed right at first but by the time we knew it was wrong we were so far along that we decided to take our chances on being able to correct further up rather than backtrack. Thankfully that worked out swimmingly - as soon as we reconnected with the road, we could see our trail again right away. The sun came out and we all celebrated by stripping on the trail.
We keep running into a group of Vancouverites who are doing a tour and today we ran into them in Blois. We also met a group of four from China who are traveling the opposite direction from us. Tonight we have a couple from Sydney sharing our campsite. They have the kind of tent with a super long vestibule in the front.
