Next morning I hadn't realised the campsite barriers were down until 8am. I was sitting there on my bike ready to boogie at 7am! Luckily a resident from one of the mobile homes was leaving for work and had a pass to lift the barrier. A lucky start which soon turned too a 200 mile slog in the rain up to Bayeux. The highlight of this was an extremely soggy MacDonalds "Royale wit cheese" ( I had to try one after listening to the soundtrack from Pulp fiction so many times ) washed down with a large hot coffee and 15 minutes trying to dry my gloves in the toilet hand dryer.

First thing I saw in Bayeux campsite was this fantastic desert machine. It had stopped raining by now so out came the Canon.

A chat with some soaked french girl cyclists and a short walk to town to check out the historic area.

Bayeux cathedral

Down stairs to the crypt

I reckon this is the bottom half of a tomb. There were some others there with the lids on. Cold damp and musty, excellent!
