Monday 21st April - La Barre de Monts to Les Sables d’Olonne
Headed south on some more Vendee Velo to St Jean de Monts and picked up the day’s provisions. Then a fast ride to St Gilles Croix de Vie where we once again hit the ocean proper. Only for the second time did we manage to pace lunch to be overlooking the ocean.
Took a forest route towards Les Sables d’Olonne which lead us to the mysterious town of Olonne sur Mer; try as we might to maintain a direct course we found ourselves passing signs for entering and leaving the town time after time - it was like a moving metropolis, forever one step ahead of us.
Into Les Sables and Jane headed straight for the fountain. Then it was along the front and a short detour inland to Camping Les Fosses Rouges.
