After breakfast we pedaled 14km north on the D118 to Esperaza and the Sunday Flea market there. The market was more than we expected. There was ample food, wine, clothing, jewelry, baskets and musicians. It was a very place and it seemed like we were the only tourists. Our flashy Lycra really made us stick out. Unfortunately we didn't make any purchases. It started to rain as we approached the Inn, so we decided on another car ride.

First stop was Rennes-Le-Chateau, a hilltop village with an old church. Admittedly I don't know much about this village. There was just one restaurant and a few shops. It was very windy up there and it was raining lightly.

Then we drove to Limoux and had lunch on the square, though I don't remember the name of the place. Again, we both had pizza. It was good but not quite as good as Le Capio.

We tried to buy diesel fuel today (Gazoil in French) but none of our credit cards worked at the non-attended (its Sunday) gas stations. Plus there is some sort of fuel delivery strike so we are starting to watch how many km we do. An English man at one of the stations said that only French credit cards work at the gas stations, and he has a French Credit Card specifically for that purpose.
