Highlights

- started ride with a steep climb to Pujols, a very cute walled medieval village (high up). Impressed other tourists with out clim and they congratulated us on our endurance ( with the paniers!

- Main crops today were Fruit trees and corn. Tom has decided France survives on corn there is so much growing!

- Finally saw plums being harvested. A machine grabbed the trunk and shook the bejesus out of each tree, which was too much for the poor plums who then let go and fell into a huge apron spread out beneath. The apron folded and tipped the plums into a container behind the tractor.

- We left the Lot valley at Clairac. Just before the river emptied into the Garonne. Clairac seemed to be yet another interesting medieval town, only views as we cycled through.

- The climb out of the Lot valley into the Garonne was not at all arduous, which is what we had anticipated
