I rack up a lot of kilometers on the bicycle today but it doesn't feel particularly difficult. After leaving the Garonne I'm crossing rolling hills until I meet up with the Canal du Midi again; from there it's easy living following the canal towpath. I deliberately skirt the Corbières (mountains/foothills north of the Pyrénées) because I'm just worn out from all of the climbing.

There's a whole village full of them, that way.

I see a sign for a campground off the canal and decide that's probably my best bet for the night. Camping "La Capelle", run by a friendly guy who wonders why I speak French. We have a few laughs.
