imageHow sweet it was to hike with just a small daypack today, many thanks to Andy & Denise. The first half of the day was one long climb through miles of open fields of grazing cattle. There is a unbelievable number of French hikers, they aren’t Pilgrims, they are on a week or 10 day holiday. We did meet two men from Australia, a woman from Belgium, and a woman from Germany, who are Pilgrims. We walked a ways with the young German girl, Eva, who started walking from Germany, crossed part of Switzerland, now crossing France, on her way to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, then she intends to continue on to Oporto, Portugal. Now that is a Pilgrim. Interestingly the majority of hikers, pilgrim or not are women.
There was a village at the midpoint perfectly positioned for a snack & coffee, the second half of the day was a continual steep rocky down, miles of rolly slippery rocks. We are spending the night in a tiny room and bath adjoining a stone medieval house. Our hosts,a New Zealand women and Her French husband. A very interesting couple they have been Ocean sailors and he is a cook,so we share a number of interest and ideas.
