Scooting round the Ile de Re (belatedly sorting out my blogs now we're home and laptop is working again - more to follow as I get the photos sorted out)

Woke up to a stunning blue sky day. A little breezy but it often is on the Ile de Re as it’s so flat. We’ve visited the island 4 times before (Bob thought 3 but a quick check of my blogs shows 4) so have been to most places but everywhere is so lovely it doesn’t matter.

Bob unloaded Kisbee the scooter and we set off in search of fuel and found some just before the turn to Ars en Re.

Tank full we did a tour of Ars en Re including the pretty harbour, admired the lovely narrow streets lined with white buildings then had takeaway galettes for lunch.

Next stop Phare des Balleines which my trip records show we visited in 2003. Still standing, sky still blue and sand still as soft but more shops ( only an olive shop there in 2003 !).

Last stop was Portes de Re where we had difficulty finding the way to the centre. Sometimes discreet signposting can be too discreet !

Had an expensive coffee served by an unsmiling waitress before returning to the campsite for a swim in the pool.
