A couple of days at St Cyprien (bottom left on France map) is as snuggled up to Spain as we go until February.
St Cyprien, plage et port
Despite the bright sunshine the weather is much colder now and all the t-shirts and sandals are back in the suitcase for a few months and the scarves, hats and gloves are out. Luckily I’ve got the new chunky jumper (and matching hat) finished and all sewn up as it really is that cold. There’s a rather brisk wind (gale) coming straight off Les Pyrénées Catalanes which are only a few kilometres away and look to be dusted with icing sugar, the first dusting of the winter.
Les Pyrénées Catalanes + icing sugar
From here it doesn’t look as if the chains will be needed although I know where they are and how to fit them – no 3,000€ fine for me! My route was decided before the sugar sifter was used overnight and that route takes us up and over to Ax-les-Thermes and a zig-zag and very slow meander north. Well that’s the plan …
at the moment!
