Our feet and other body parts seem to have given up their more serious protests and given into the fact that we intend to make this trek. Despite all our prep and training, my feet were giving me some pain on the first two days and Laurie had some tightness in the tendon and muscle behind one knee. But we’ve settled with minimal use of painkillers (other than French wine) and feel much better.
We had our first sighting of a caselle—a round style hut that can be seen in the region. Sorry, we couldn’t get interior shots.
The French seem to like robot lawn mowers. We’ve seen this model in action several times. I think it was heading for my toes.
Good news, bad news, on the technical front:
- Another failure on Relive so no video of the route. Too bad, it was an interesting hike. We still have photos from the day.
- The comments function is now working. No, really, give it a try. I had to engage technical support from our webhost (SiteGround.com—I HIGHLY recommend them if you’re looking for a website host) and they helped me identify the problem and fix it.
Some selected photos from the journey today. We walked about 15 miles from Livinhac-le-Haut to Figeac where we’ve settled into a private room. We will be going to a blessing for pilgrims at the local cathedral at 6:30.
