Ile de Re

We had a frustrating start to our journey today as we had agreed with Evans Cycles that we would drop my poor broken bike off in a town called Cholet. It would then be sent back to England to be examined. We had to drive quite a distance out of our way to get there, and then DHL refused to take the bike off us as Evans had messed it up and sent us to the wrong place. Eventually, we had to load it back in the van and carry on our way.
Mid afternoon we arrived at the Ile de Re and we know very little about the it yet, apart from that you arrive via a very impressive bridge.
We picked the first campsite that we came to, settled in and are very happy with it. I am slightly relieved that there is no sign of the couple who recommended that we visit the island.
We have a fantastic sea and bridge view, and we have backed our van as close to the sea as possible. (The second photo is the view from inside our van, not the inside of a snorkeling mask.)
