IMG 1264Up early for a complex day getting Mary to Bordeaux for her flight back to the UK, my to return the hire car, bidding a fond farewell to the Spyder and recovering my bike in Cognac.

All of this worked and I ended up fairly late (7pm) at L'Hotel Val de Vienne somewhere south east of Poitiers. This is a very tranquil and idyllic spot in very rural France. Well worth a visit and, apparently, there is a motorcycle track nearby.

Tomorrow will be a thrash towards Calais that I am not looking forward to.

I suspect that may be the last of our motorcycle trips to France which is very sad. I shall miss them a lot.
