We started today with ‘Hurty, Didn’t Sleep Ann’ so I thought we’d have to shorten up the plan for the day. She started doing better once we started, though, and 20km in I thought she’d do fine for our planned 39km. Then I saw a 30km to Andenis sign. My info from the Bikeline map gave me the wrong distance to Ancenis! It would be 50+km, not 39. Yikes! So, over lunch we discussed adjusting the plan and staying instead at St-Florent-le-Vieil. We thought perhaps the 30km sign was wrong and we still might make it to Ancenis and we would just see how things went. Not long after we came to a branch which offered an alternate, more direct route, which we decided to take, keeping St-Florent in our back pockets if necessary. At the turn off for St-Florent, we decided that we could press on to Ancenis, so we did, for a total distance of 51km (on the SHORTER route).

We met lots of folks today, including Denis at the campground who was patiently waiting for his wife to get up before beginning his day, Matt and Harry from London, Ontario (father and son- Harry being 8 years old), and Steve from Nelson.

Laura had her feet flat today, bringing the total up between the four of us to TEN. A crazy amount of flats.
