Day 22 Mirepeisset to Carcassonne

That wind again. It's 80 kph according to the local paper. We've taken a picture if case we are not believed.....

We even resorted to riding along the Canal du Midi to find some shelter. 

If you look very closely, you can see Richard

Its quite remarkable, starting in Toulouse and finishing in Bordeaux.  The riding is pleasant but slow and if we continue on this route we're never going to get anywhere.  The only option is the train from Carcassonne to Tarbes. Unfortunately, or not, there isn't one until tomorrow morning. So we are staying in the municipal campsite within sight of the medieval city. It's very nice and we have 2 bottles of Languedoc wine. The only downside is that we have to get up at 5am to catch the train.

He's more obvious in this picture


And now he's in the way.  And he needs a shave
