We set off from Saint Palais relaxed today, as again we knew it wasn't an enormous distance. But our main mission at first was to find our way back to the GR 65. We had studied maps madly, and knew the right road to take - a minor road fortunately - which would intersect with the GR in about 4 kms theoretically. So we set off and found that this was a very uphill road (funny how all maps look flat!) and we continued, asking ...

Then we could have ploughed along the GR uphill and down dale, or leave the GR and walk along the road to St Palais, which we did, as we weren't sure that we would have found the right place to turn off if we had continued along.

Amr also wants me to mention that the wifi code at this place had 37 characters!!! It took both of us 4 goes to get on!!! So we left at about 8.45, and just as it started to rain! They had said pm showers, but it was steady enough to need ponchos....but after 10 mins or less stopped, and held ...
