Day 54 Lands End to Plymouth
Reasonable ride back to Penzance despite huge potato trucks on the narrow lanes. Chatted with v. enthusiastic man at station. Had celebratory egg and chips, wrote postcards and blogs – sunshine now!!! Caught train to Plymouth, very friendly staff again on train. “Beep” found great route from station in Plymouth to Port. Heavens opened and we and a convoy of motorcyclists were offered shelter in freight office. Supper and bed on board the ferry.

Day 56 13th June Dol to La Gandonniere – HOME!
Left Dol anticipating rain, missed it – someone(John?) looking after us and giving us the chance to ride the Dol to Mont St Michel route racing hares across the Marais – great – Cafe stop in Beauvoir – then the “line” (voie verte) to St. Hilaire – feels good back in France. Sandwich lunch picnic at
Pont d’Oir an old station on the voie verte (a vendre – lottery win?) always wanted to stop there. Shopped Carrefour and back via Lapenty and Notre-Dame-de-Touchet. Home 1530ish – heavy shower started as we made the 1st cup of tea!!
