We wanted today to be a day to acclimate ourselves to the GR 65 route and get used to carrying our backpacks. We left our comfortable Airbnb studio at 7:30 am.
We picked up the route at the Cathedral and proceeded out of town.
I just loaded my first picture, and it took forever!!! We are at our rest stop for the day. There is no wifi here and not much of a cellular reception. I will try and load few more pictures to give you a sense of the countryside.
The closest town is 1/2 km back, and it has no wifi either! The town’s population is 927 people. There are neither stores nor restaurants there, just a picnic area for all the hikers to mingle and eat their lunches. Our lodgings provide a dinner meal, and the proprietor has said she will make us a picnic lunch for tomorrow.
We walked about 12 km today and climbed 104 floors. A good hike to get in shape for longer days ahead.
Here are some highlights from today’s walk.
Thank you for all your comments and best wishes. The best reward for Pat and Me is to go over those comments.
