At the end of the day

Tiring day. Got out of Centerparcs shortly after 10am, and drove on cross-country D routes until we got to Le Mans. Obviously quite slow going, but there was very little traffic and given that we had the bikes on the back...

Weather has been at best overcast during the day, but we had torrential rain as we left Le Mans and headed up to Brittany. Approaching Rennes, where just two weeks ago we sat and ate lunch in brilliant sunshine, visibility was down to a hundred metres or so, and we had to slow right down.

Still, we arrived finally at our hotel in Dinard, a big Thalasso centre. Although the rain has stopped now, visibility is poor and there is a sea mist. However, the forecast for tomorrow is sunshine and clouds, but no rain.

Once we arrived we all headed for the bar for a quick drink, after which I was ready for a kip. Jacqueline and Alice, however, made full use of the pool here (salt water of course, bonnets compulsory), although they're quite strict about usage so Alice wasn't allowed to enjoy any other of the facilities (sauna, jacuzzi).
Will probably eat in tonight - the hotel's restaurant has a decent looking menu. We have tomorrow at leisure, not sure what we'll do, although St Malo seems the obvious choice.
