This has been one of the best days of this trip for riding weather. It was quite ideal. What was less ideal was the potato chip flu that I had for several hours. I had bought some potato chips that we ate for a snack before dinner (I really pigged out on them). I felt a little off at dinner and could hardly eat any of my delicious galette. In the middle of the night I woke up feeling food-poison-ey and tried to hurl but couldn’t. I felt queasy for half the day today.

We took the side trip into Angers today, adding about 10km to the ride and getting lunch in town and a good look at the Chateau, which is quite an impressive structure. Brent and I didn’t recognize the way in or out of town, so we’ll have to look through our notes from 2015 to see what we did.

One of the things we certainly did not recognize was the self-ferry. Ann and I wouldn’t have had a hope of getting across without Brent and Laura who provided all the brains, skill and brawn to get us all across safely.

I’m very pleased to be having completely conversations with people in French, including giving other people directions. So glad I did all the French study over the last year.

We stopped to check out one of the Catholic Churches in Angers and were treated to an organist practicing on the enormous church organ.

I had ANOTHER flat today, bringing me up to four for the trip. I sort of had six, but three of them were all the same flat (two of them were patches that didn’t hold).
