Joanna, from London joins me
Did you know most businesses in France are closed on Monday? Now I know that to be a fact as the only provisions for lunch to be had on my walk today was a Marrs candy bar from an Esso gas station vending machine. Duck dinner more than made up for the short comings.
Joanna and I walked in the morning mist. Our gite has blue shutters accented by the Wisteria in full bloom.

I wonder if they are really closed on Mondays or just Easter Monday? You’ll know next Monday for sure!
I’ll have plenty of Mondays to sort the day’s business schedules; however, I’ll tuck an apple and cheese in my pack before shops close mid-day Sunday. The villages I passed yesterday afternoon looked like Paris in August.
15 miles! sounds reckless to me.
Nice day here (London) but your rain due to arrive during the night.
Love. Your gite . Are you having fun? Bob and I are having a great time being armchair pilgrims.
Joanna and I have a private ensuite room and slept wonderfully last night. What a switch from co-ed convert dorms. Christina and Mimi are actually sleeping in a stone tower. Swiss family on ground floor. French ladies on 1st floor. German men on 2nd floor. It’s like a mini- United Nations.
What beautiful pictures…wish I was there!!
Reminded me of rainy days on the C2C. Come any time to join in the evolving walk, but you will have to ding show tunes. Linda
