We are here, ensconced in a very pretty gite. We are showered, our clothes are washed and drying. Dad is napping, and I am sitting on a chair next to an open, screened ceiling-to-floor window overlooking flowers and the courtyard 6 ft below. And writing to you!
It’s 3:15 pm here. Today’s walk was lovely. We left at 6:20 am to sweet, dark coolness with the sun just about ready to rise. I love this time of day, with the air still, the village asleep, roosters soon to crow their cacophony off in the distance.
The path was gently rolling today, the views, breathtaking. We walked steadily until about 11:00 am when we stopped beside the trail to take our packs off, rest and eat a baguette sandwich of lettuce, mayo, chicken. It hit the spot.
I thought this was beautiful and conveyed our scenic walk. All I need to do is add the pictures.
Today also turned out to be a social day, especially after lunch. We met Bart from Belgium first.
As finishing lunch, we met Renee, Jacque, and Claude again (we had had dinner with them a few days ago).
Pat having conversations with Claudine and Marie-Claude, two French former pre-school teachers.
This is the gite where we stay tonight and tomorrow night (tomorrow is our rest day after 6 consecutive days of walking). It will be nice to check out the town while wearing our sandals and without backpacks. Simple joys.
