Brief update: We spent a couple of hours this morning exploring the Papal city and bridge of after Avignon and set off with all the Snails at about 11am. After a fuel stop we found a roadside cafe called Bar de Lignane – just north of Aix-en-Provence. Here with very slow but friendly service we were forced to relax and take our time sitting outside in the first proper sunshine and blue skies of the trip. We cleared the Cafe's stocks by drinking all of the Cafe's wine, eating all of their Steaks and finishing off their frites!
From there it was another 80km South East heading towards Nice - there were various escapades, water fights etc on the way but this is best told by the pilots who will be blogging later this evening.
We started arriving at the Hotel from about 4.30pm and after checking in were forced to try out the pool and sun beds! Dinner is at 8pm and more blogs and pictures to follow by the Pilots.
