IMG 0471Another longish day from Pau to La Roque-Gageac on the banks of the Dordogne River. By 4pm we had both had enough and were glad to get to our night stop of La Belle Etoile.

There are castles and a boat trip on offer here so we will cancel travel for tomorrow and stay on here. It's a long way across France and we will need to pace ourselves and not take on too much milage per day or we will run too many risks on the bikes

The weather is superb, not too hot, mid twenties - except for a brief period of fog near Pau this morning. The countryside is very rural and no where near as exotic as the Pyrenees but very pleasant none the less.

Dinner at Le Belle Etoile was pretty good after a welcome beer down at the wharf where the tourist boats leave from.
