Bonjour from Saugues.
Just a short post tonight as it's been a long day, though we only covered a short distance. A combination of a late start, the logistics of walking in a big group, a long lunch, followed by a steep climb, and with two of our crew struggling with injuries. But the weather was kind and the scenery stunning - again!
We arrived in Saugues around 6 just in time to shower before dinner at 7. We are in a lovely gite, again twin rooms with own bathroom, with demi-pensione - dinner, bed and breakfast. We also had to quickly shop for lunch and snack provisions for the next day or so as there are not many villages along the way and we've been cautioned that the few cafes, bars or shops there are will not be open on Sunday or Monday! This is a matter of some importance. Pilgrims need to eat - often! I'll let you know how we get on.
Two things before I sign off.
First - thank you to Dad and Elaine, Martin and Rosanne for your comments and email - great to hear from you. And to Clare and Richard, BIG THANK YOU for looking after the Zoe and Zac and sending photos of them heading out for afternoon walk. They look very happy.
Second - I'm trying to resolve the photo size and quality problem and hope the photos on this post will be clearer. My concern is that I'm increasing the file size for those who have signed up for the daily email, and it will be too large a file or too slow to download. If that's the case, please let me know. Anyhoo, fingers crossed.
Until the next update, sending love and best wishes. A bientot.
