After 11days of non-stop hiking we both finally ‘hit the wall’ after arriving at Decazeville. The walk from Conques to Decazeville was largely either climbing or descending om a muddy or stony goat track. This was coupled with rain from lunchtime onwards. Sandy’s feet are not a pretty sight! So we have decided to have a few rest days.
Leaving Conques with the Abbey and church in the background.
The steep cobblestone lane we took leaving Conques. Peter slipped and fell here – the first fall either of us have had so far.
One of the many climbs of the day looking back to Conques.
The only refreshment stop for tbe whole day was at a farmer’s shed where the kind farmer provided hot drinks and soup to passing pilgrims. Payment ? – just a donation!!!
Inside a small chapel halway up the first cliff we had to climb over the day.
