We saw our first caselle yesterday, an ancient round, stone hut yesterday. Today we saw more—and were able go inside one. They look like they are “dry-laid” which means the stones are stacked one atop each other without mortar. We saw similar, but much smaller structures, in Ireland.
We still spend most of our days walking through the French countryside, where much of the land is used for cows, sheep, horses, and donkeys. Today we saw our first pig. Many of the lovely French cows sport the latest hairstyle, as with this reluctant subject
We enjoyed our stay at the gite on the outskirts of Figeac. The owner, Luc, has spent a lot of time touring the US and we compared notes on great places to visit. We met up with amis (friends) we haven’t seen for days and were able to catch up. Also meeting new people. Have yet to meet another American.
Our walk this morning started under overcast skies which kept it cool for a good part of the day. Ideal hiking weather, but not great for photos. Laurie still managed to get some good shots for the Relive recap. Enjoy!
