We planned today to drive to Perpignan (90 minutes away by car) but found ourselves delayed by  a crash on the A61 before we even got to Carcassonne. The toll for the trip was EUR 12.5. Set to arrive at midday, we pushed on another 15 miles to Collioure hoping to find somewhere to lunch. We could then return to Perpignan in the afternoon when the shops would be open.

We found a lovely harbourside restaurant and had a very pleasant couple of hours eating seafood.

Our meal delayed us sufficiently for us to change our plan slightly to head home across the Pyrenees rather than go to Perpignan and home via Narbonne. In this way we could take in the Gorges Galamus.
