  • Day 23 (Day 20 Camino)
  • Toulouse
  • Distance: 15 1/2 miles (100% tarmac) 295 1/2 total miles
  • Ascent 670 feet and descent 728 feet
  • Time: 7 hours
  • Weather: 50-60 degrees, cloudy, steady rain, blue sky’s with clouds

Yesterday’s rain washed clothes began the day dry, only to be laundered by today’s rains.

The Camino provides…The French-Three-Some and I separate company today. As they ends their walk, Françoise offered the standard goods: Compeeds (blister treatment) and zip-lock bags. After two rains in two days, she insisted the loan of her rain poncho. Through I have a backpack cover, Gortex rain jacket and paints, yesterday’s rain totally soaked my pack. A poncho better protects the bag and walker; albeit, hotter and more weight in my pack.
