Last night we were nestled in a steep valley in Conques. We had spent the night in the St. Foy abbey located close to the top of the conch-shaped town (hence the name, Conques).
The panoramic view upon reaching the top was wonderful.
After 22 km of walking in the sun and 150 floors of climbing, we got to our gite only to find out that we needed to walk another 2 km further into town to get our dinner and to buy a picnic breakfast and lunch for tomorrow. On the way into town, we ran into Neve and her family as they were planning to have a late lunch.
