Jacques at Le Deuxieme Soufflé took very good care of us this morning, making sure we knew the route out of Cahors. He assured us that the steepest hill would be at the start when leaving the city and that the rest of the day would be bearable. It was!
The cool 19C temperature certainly helped. There was much more cloud cover than in recent days but a weak sun peaked through in the morning now and then. It looked like it would rain in the afternoon but thankfully it held off until we reached our destination.
We had no fear of getting lost like we did a couple of days ago. Now that we are back on the main route (GR65), we can once again follow our reliable Wise Pilgrim offline map or simply follow other pilgrims on the trail. We haven’t seen so many other pilgrims since we left Le Puy on September 1st!
Our day consisted of listening to a myriad of tweeting birds in the morning, chatting with Canadians and Australians, enjoying the countryside as we made our way along a mix of trails and roads, and one big field of the brownest sunflowers we’ve ever seen.
We are staying tonight at “The Nest of Angels” in Lascabanes. We’ve showered, washed our clothes, and are now sitting downstairs where the wi-fi is strong, smelling what promises to be a delicious dinner. Yum! 😋
