We awoke late – well it was Sunday! After a quick dip in the Thalasso pool, we decided to watch today’s stage on the television. It was clearly going to be a scorcher and we had no desire to head away from the gentle Atlantic breezes. In addition, my beloved’s hip and my leg were feeling the efforts expended yesterday.
We had a short potter along the beach before retiring to the blessed air-conditioned dining room for brunch. Now, you know how much we both enjoy brunch and this was excellent. We watched another nervous crash-marred stage this time won by world champion Peter Sagan. He pulled on the race leader’s and the green points’ jersey. He’ll lose the former in tomorrow’s team time-trial but may not relinquish the latter, instead wearing it all the way to Paris.
