Changing to!

I can't succeed in uploading photos to this site so I'm going to move my blog to where you can find me as JerryFromAlameda.  You'll have to create an account there, but it's free.

We put pur bikes together yesterday in Pornic.  We didn't know which way to go.  The hotel yold to go to the road and turn right.  But my GPS gadget ondicated to turn left, so that's what we did.  We soon decided that was wrong and asked a lady for directions.  Her instructions took us back past the hotel before we decided that we must have taken a wrong turn.  We turned around and passed the hotel again.  We made it a mile before a driver stopped us and urged us to take another route along the shoreline.  So we turned around and passed the hotel again to find the route the driver recommended.  A great road, just what the hotel told us to do from the start!

After a late start with putting the bikes together and wearing out the road in front of the hotel, we rode about 30 miles to Paimboeuf at the mouth of the Loire.  We found a very friendly B&B.  Good night.

At the airport.

Melinda and Roy drove the three boxed bikes to the airport.  Corinne picked up Fern and drove us to BART.  much confusion at the check-in over the bikes.  In the end, the check-in lady waived one of the three $200 fees as compensation for the confusion.

Ten hours on the plane ahead!
