In true form the old song said ‘What a difference a day makes – 24 little hours in a day’. It’s been inbelievable!!!
Over the past day the temperature has moved from -7 degrees to +17 degrees giving us perfect hiking weather to enjoy being in France’s beautiful countryside.
Au revoir Saint-Chely-d’Aubrac after a great evening at our Logis Hotel with our 2 Dutch and 2 Canadian walking friends.
Mid morning coffee stop made possible by an enterprising farmer’s wife who enjoys meeting passing pilgrims each day and in return earns quite a few euros from drink sales.
Watering and rest stop for our Dutch friends and Peter amongst the tall deciduous trees along the track.
Afternoon tea with a far better view than the coffee offered.
Stunning topography today.
Dinner with Swiss, French and Germans at tonight’s Chambre-de-hote. Menu comprised of soup, pate, ‘special’ sausage and vegetables, local cheeses followed by creme caramel washed down with plenty of vin de pays.
Sandy managed to avoid having sausage – again and took the vegetarian option of omelette instead. There’s only so much sausage a girl can comsume and every town has its own ‘special’ one. Perhaps best to limit taking up offers of the demi-pension when there are other dining options.
