The following morning was an easy start, we were getting back on to the canal tow path, which was just by the campsite. Again, the day’s ride was quite easy in terms of cycling and navigation to the next destination, the city of Rennes.
The campsite at Rennes was north-east of the city centre in the Parc des Gazelles. Again, it was a municipal site. As in a lot of French sites, the pitches were separated by hedging, which I like as it makes your plot a bit more private.
The plan was for us to stay here an extra day and go and explore the old quarter of Rennes, as my son and his girlfriend had recommended it from their visit the previous year.
Well, as all good plans can, and do, change, this one certainly did! It’s amazing how three inconsiderate, noisy idiots can spoil an otherwise peaceful campsite for the rest of us. As it looked as though they were going to be there for a few days, and because we didn’t want to risk another sleepless night, we decided to give up on the visit to Rennes and move on.
So in the morning, we packed up and set off for Vitre.
