Saturday 17th May - Saint Marie de la Mer to St Mitre les Remparts
A great morning's ride across and through the heart of the Camargue; generally very good riding but just with a few wind-blown sandy sections that needed a little ploughing through!
Real pink flamingos in evidence today. Some fast busy roads followed the crossing of the Petit Rhone by Bac but, tails were up today and we finished ahead of our notional programme at Camping Sarl Felix de la Bastide.
Dutch owned and inspired, it has possibly the best atmosphere of all the sites we've stayed at and, probably worth a revisit for the hospitality alone! Our traveling exploits seemed to quickly circulate the site and local celebrity ensued.
