Today should have been a lazy 50 but we had to re-do the 10 miles that we backtracked yesterday to find a hotel. It was still pretty easy going and we were in by 2:45 (no sweeping for me today).
We are staying in a small hotel in Mora. It was once a grand private house and is now a 15 bedroom hotel which we have completely taken over. The owners are lovely and very keen to impress us. When Rob arrived with the luggage they insisted he joined them for lunch then greeted all the cyclists with home-made lemonade. Tonight they are serving us a ‘tradditional’ Portugese dinner and my hopes are high.
We have a wonderful room overlooking open countryside (see picture) and tomorrow the sun will rise and greet us through our picture window.
Today was sunny and hot; the forecast for tomorrow is ‘chuffing toasty’. I here the weather is poor in blighty…….snigger.
