Day 38 – to Aigues Mortes

154 km
This was the first day since long, that the day started with sunshine and in the evening the sky was still clear. Until Capestang I used a departmental road. Then I wanted to switch to the canal bridleway, because some highlights are in that part. On Poiles the road was ‘barree’ for tree cutting. Some cyclists already warned and wanted me to turn, but I wanted another alternate route via Montady to see the étang. It is nice to see from above  ▶ Google Earth. But from the town the view was not that great as from the hill with the Oppidium d’Ensérune in the south.
I reached the canal in Colombiers and the piste cyclable on the bridleway some km’s further, just in time to see the nine locks in series and some later the Pont Canal de l’Orb with a awesome view to Beziers. Then further via the bridleway and minor roads to the Mediterranean Sea near Agde. The next part was following coast and beaches to Le Grau du Roi. I already checked one camping (full) and a second (abandoned). Finally I found the   Camping a la ferme just before sunset.
