To Parthenay - The Bordeaux Loop - CycleBlaze

May 25, 2008 to May 26, 2008

To Parthenay

I see that I missed posting this two day section, so I’ll do it now.   it was a short and easy two day stretch, stopping the first night at Fontenay-le-Compte,  and the second at Parthenay.  Also, I see that I missed remembering much of anything about it, save for the delightful visit we had with an English-fluent couple that shouted down to us from their 2nd story on our way out of Parthenay.  They invited us up for tea and a look around their home, and then we biked on to find our room.  Probably our favorite personal encounter on the tour.

The river Vendée, Fontenay-le-Compte.

In Parthenay. If we had an encounter like this now, we would at least make note of their names!
