Day 60

What a beauty. Riding on the coastline around Omaha Beach on perfect gravel, cliffs and hardly anybody around. Ended in Port en Bessin which was a great small harbour village. Great campsite as well with a group of very friendly campers who invited me for dinner. And coffee in the morning. Very much appreciated! Day 59 I skipped here, only a short bike ride, followed by a train ride, ending at a very unfriendly gite host. Main reason was rain. Rained a lot.

Specially to get the same ones, mostly they have only one. Didn’t manage, they are now different, but I indulged myself and got them installed. After all, I did a 12km detour!
