Sunday 20th April - St Brevin to La Barre de Monts - Salty Flat
The Velocean to Pornic with some of our most fluid riding of the trip (seems we’re starting to get the hang of this thing!). Pornic was bathed in sunshine, just perfect for the promenading French in their Easter Sunday best.
In late morning, we reached the end of the Velocean and joined the Velodyssey in the working salt marshes of the Vendee. Lunch was in Bouin by the church; spectacular stained glass and though its Easter, we were drawn to the symbolism of Moses (Moise) and our shared journeys to ‘the promised land’.
More salty flats took us all the way to La Barre de Monts and another excellent transitory abode.
