Castles and croissants

Today's ride was one of my more interesting adventures. First off I found this little gem, ( pic below) after a session of hill reps I did, for a minute doubt my eyes. But it was indeed there, a sanctuary apparently.

Continuing on my merry way I proceeded to follow a road which got smaller and smaller and then definitely ceased to be a road. Then it ceased to be a dirt road and became a goat track, not well suited to the skinny rubber.

Having returned via a somewhat longer route than expected I proceeded to stage a hypo of monumental scale, not so bad generally but it rural Catalonia nothing is open from two to five pm. Fortunately I managed to find a bakery which was still occupied, if closed. Once again, pastry saved my life!

I've been having a bit of a stressful time recently and it's slaying my bg control, I'm going badly low often, like so low that my meter just says "lo" not quite sure what's up, I tend to bounce back up slowly but once up there I spend a few hours high as a kite, not good.

Anyway enjoy the picture!
