With Dee due in Foix at 11am it seemed a good chance to be tourists and se we joined her, Pete and Emily over to this historic city about an hour to the east.

We spent the morning exploring the impressive castle before finding a restaurant for lunch where we were able to watch the friday market pack up and Tour vehicles roll through (Foix is on tomorrow’s tour route).

We dashed back in the afternoon to watch the Tour online, again all adding to the sense of anticipation.

Another slap up feed and an early night saw us as ready as we could be for our rendez-vous with the Tour tomorrow.
