Passed three ex-station buildings on the way. Very similar to those one finds beside the similarly converted cycle tracks in the Landes region - where we will be in 10 days time.
|First section of track.|
|First station - station clock to right of main door.|
|Second station - name plate removed above window and no clock.|
|Third station with name plate and clock.|

|Post dinner walk.|
We shared the table with a French couple with a limited English to match our limited French.
When the conversation got round to hobbies and interests, I asked the chap if he had a boat or played tennis. No, he preferred the armchair and reading. In particular he liked to sit in his armchair with a glass of Pineau and read the fables of the 17th Century writer Jean de la Fontaine.
