Another day in Lamalou meant just one thing for Rob, more riding (there seems to be a pattern forming here…)! So with Rob off exploring the hills again GUB, Zoe and I decided to head to Pezenas, a extremely charming town which is home to pavement cafes, pretty boutiques and stunning old buildings.
As is the Bickerton way, the first priority is always food so we stopped off at a cafe overlooking a rather impressive building to grab a few croques. With a combination of croque-monsieurs and croque-madames (a monsieur with an egg on top) consumed, we made a beeline for the main shopping area and began ducking into pretty shops selling everything from jams and chutneys to bags, pottery to posh biscuits, jewellery to incredible tasting chocolate spread!
With a few purchases made and a few more things added to the Christmas list (well Facebook does like to keep reminding me it’s only sixteen weeks to go!), it left just enough time for Dad to pop into the stationery shop to stock up on more pens for his little men before we headed back to Lamalou and Rob.
Another lazy evening followed of BBQ leftovers and relaxing, before an early night so Rob could get up early for yet another ride!!
