I have arrived in Aumont-Aubrac today and will be crossing the first part of the Aubrac Plateau tomorrow. Last time the weather was awful! But it has been quite warm and sunny today so am hoping that continues for the next two days, so I can enjoy all the wildflowers.
Am enjoying being back on the Le Puy route and have met some really nice ladies along the way, two of whom are walking for a week, and who have much the same pace as me. This is the fourth night we have independently booked the same gite- which is kind of how the Lyne & Denis scenario went in 2008!
Have been lucky to have stayed in some lovely gites; tonight I am back in Ferme du Barry where he seems to have remembered me from last time! Either that, or he is being polite because he has heard the story of last night's laundry and how the farmer had to take the washing machine apart. But that's a story for another day when I am home and have more time on the internet!
Am pleased with how my walking pace is going... and life is much simpler here where well-placed gites seem to offer meals and snacks along the way. Be back when I can.....
