Day 6, Morlaix to Le Faou

 Very nice, two wonderful days back to back. Both days bright blue skies with temperatures ranging from the mid 60s in the morning to the low 70's in the afternoon. For cycling, you can't ask for anything better. Today we left the coast that we have been hugging the past 4 days and said goodbye to all the quiet seaside town and heading inland across the peninsula that Breast is located. In doing so, we didn't have nearly as much climbing that we have had in the past 4 days. In addition the mileage was shorter as well.

I'll tell you, these area of the country is just filled with viaducts traversing the landscape. Confused of what a viaduct is? Me too. to me me it just looks like a big bridge, but this is what Wikipedia has to say:

A viaduct is a specific type of bridge that consists of a series of arches, piers or columns supporting a long elevated railway or road. Typically a viaduct connects two points of roughly equal elevation, allowing direct overpass across a wide valley, road, river, or other low-lying terrain features and obstacles

The photo below is a viaduct from today's ride. So next time someone asks you, you can tell them the difference.
