Return ride from Ducey to Grouin du Sud
Ducey to Grouin du Sud
We often have to satisfy our desire to see the sea. So we decided to transport the tandem to Ducey and ride around the coast towards Avranches, cross the See and pick up the signed cycle route to the popular beauty spot called ‘Le Grouin du Sud’.
A pleasant picnic was taken, on route, near the Aerodrome d’Avranches at Val-St-Pere. The area was busy being a Sunday, both with aircraft using the aerodrome – which is interestingly sited actually below the high tide line! – and the local radio control model aeroplane club having a meeting on the foreshore. All quite entertaining.
On arriving at the Grouin, we should not have been surprised that this popular spot was also fairly crowded – by our standards! A few pictures taken, and retraced our route back to Ducey.
