Thursday 29 August 2013: EdF

This morning we were delayed slightly owning to a rivet snapping on our Karrimor panniers. There was no shop in the village to sell us a nut, bolt and washers to repair it so I had to do my best with a bungee cord. We left Gouarec and cycled onwards. We first visited the Abbey de Bon Repos, which looks more like a ruined stately home than an abbey. We next had to leave the towpath as in the 1930s a series of valleys through which the canal ran were flooded to build a hydroelectric power station.

Today's blip is the building at the foot of the dam at the end of the Lac Guerledan. It's only an industrial building but I like the Art Deco style of the building and lettering.

We completed our cycle today at Pontivy when we arrived at our B&B next to the Chateaux. After a shower we went to explore the town, and to find a shop to buy a nut/bolt and some washers to fix the pannier. In the end we found a large out of town DIY shop and was able to buy 50 times what we wanted - so the pannier is now fixed.

Galette and crepe for dinner...!
