Last 2 days in France

We awoke to rain on the morning of the 27th, and there was no hope for a ride, so we packed the bikes up in their cases. We decided to take a drive through Perpignan and to the coast. We got to see the Mediterranean sea, but it was hardly beach weather. Of course this meant that parking was very easy in the beach towns that are near Perpignan. The highlight of the day was driving through Thuir on the way back, pictured here.

On the 28th we checked out of Les Eaux Tranquilles and bid farwell to Chris and Pat. We enjoyed our stay there. At 60 Euros you get a large clean room with a large bathroom completely ensuite. The dinners are exceptional for an extra 20 Euros. Plus the garage is made available to guests for bicycles. We stopped in at the market in Quillan on the way out of town. The market consisted of almost 100% clothing, and it was less impressive than the market in Esperaza on Sunday.

We spent the evening of the 28th at the IBIS Hotel near the Toulouse Airport and flew out on a 6:05 AM flight to Amsterdam on the morning of the 29th. Our connecting flight left Amsterdam at 13:30 and we got home without any drama.
