As promised, we woke up to a steady rain. We were ready to make it to Cahors come rain or shine!
We donned our ponchos and headed out into the dark as usual. To an untrained eye, we must have looked like the hunchback of Notre Dame.
We walked an hour in the dark before there was some light. The sun was taking a hiatus today!
If one’s spirits are up, even the rain can’t dampen one’s spirit. We kept walking, listening to the pitter patter of the rain on our hats and the ponchos.
The rain was steady most of the time, but once in a while it turned into a drizzle, allowing me to take occasional pictures.
There were no towns or sheltered areas along the way, so we had to carry our backpacks for the whole 6 hours without any break! We were finally happy to see the town of Cahors from the hill top.
After traveling over 350 km, we are taking a couple of days off and are checked into a hotel for a change. We will resume walking again on Friday or Saturday.
You two look pretty cute in your ponchos…wish you could send some of that rain to us in
California. Have a good rest in a hotel…hopefully you’ll see the sun soon. Amy
“carry our backpacks for the whole 6 hours without any break” – that is rough. Just even imagining it, it feels painful. With hard work like this, you both are qualified to be olympians. Hope you both get some good well deserved rest.
Even with the rains, you managed to take some very beautiful pictures.
Even the “Rain” pictures are beautiful! 350 Km… WOW! You deserve the nice hotel time. Enjoy!
