Another misty, chilly start to the day. Saw our Dutch pals again...they sensibly packed up and went for breakfast in the campsite cafe before heading off on their 100km for the day. We, in the meantime had a rather crispy discussion about the merits of drying the tent out before we set off for the day.
We finally got going, and began to thaw out on the bikes as we headed out of Nevers. We passed by ore picturesque villqges, often with a grand old chateau thrown if for good measure. Lunch was idyllic. Stopped on a grqssy gnoll in the sunshine beside an apple tree. We lay in the sun for our repast, entertaining a couple of guys who drove past. Motorists were again friendly and encouraging giving friendly waves or tootles as they drove past.
