Arrival at my campsite for the next two nights - Camping Gayeulles, Rennes!
My pitch at Camping Gayeulles - not as spacious as some campsites but friendly & clean enough!
These unusual cabin's are custom-built shipping containers called 'Citylodges' and are available to rent at a range of different prices - if you didn't want to camp that is!
Even has a balcony!
The Camping Gayeulles is right bang in the middle of the big park 'Parc des Gayeulles', this huge mural is in one of the picnic areas of the park
Modern bit of housing I spotted just outside the park
This building was in the middle of demolition - that cool mural will be no more by the time you read this
On my way into the centre of Rennes I was waiting by the traffic lights, perched on my bike, I look up and see this awesome mural!
Another cycle tour accomplished! yours truly posing outside the Palais du Commerce, Rennes

Rue Rallier du Baty - had a wonderful last meal in Rennes at this pizza restaurant sitting under that black canopy!
On the same street, Rue Rallier du Baty, interesting foliage on this building!
It's great walking around the cobblestoned street of Rue des Dames and admiring the architecture
