Pierrefitte-sur-Loire

We explored Digoin in the morning; it is a short walk up from the aire along the Rue Nationale, past the Office de Tourisme. The tourist office was closed for Easter.

Not sure why this Tour de France guy is cycling through the wall. Not a bike shop in sight.

In the afternoon we headed off across the canal bridge to cycle along the Lateral Canal of the Loire.

The canal passes close to the Loire at some points.

This is the route along the canal. Our track is in red. We cycled about 35 km in all. We got as far as the inappropriately named Pierrefitte-sur-Loire. Thanks to Tony for putting me on to the Strava cycling app. Tony and Rose have a blog at https://rosiepike.wordpress.com ; we met them at Nonancourt last month on the way back to the UK.

    Bonjour Mavis

    Dont you just love canals here in France – things of beauty and you have captured that in this lovely picture – bravo!

    • Thanks….it is an amazing country; what a good move of yours relocating here.
      We have just arrived at Lake Annecy, and are relaxing, glasses in hand (wineglasses, not spectacles), looking at the lake and the mountains.
