Simple joys

Walking is such a simple activity. When one is out in nature away from everyday distractions, one becomes joyful. All the worries and responsibilities are left behind. All you are focused on is putting one step in front of the other. You are in the moment. Life becomes peaceful and carefree.  The nature is so beautiful and you see it in its full glory. Even ordinary things look extra ordinary! 

The last few days we have seen a lot more color in the trees.  The path is beginning to fill up with leaves, as if nature is welcoming an early fall. 

We are 18 km from Cahors, a major city (we think) on our way. We plan to stay there a few days to rest up. Out here in this beautiful oasis, the signal is weak, and the wifi is just as weak! I am challenged by technology and am struggling trying to load any more pictures. 

Tomorrow we may have to walk in rain all day as everyone is predicting 37 ml. It should be a fun day.

    Yes, walking is a simple activity. But the miles of walking everyday with altitude and carrying your backpacks and food can be “agony” some evenings. I am glad you both have the positive attitude and are dealing with it with a smile. Also, it is admirable that you think walking tomorrow in the rain will be a fun day (I run away even if there is drizzle).
