... 40km hop to Villemagne in dull weather, ended when we reached the Weedons, in bright sunshine. Time to fill the cubes and for D to have a swim. And best of all, hot showers.
Friday was lunch and supper with Simon and Suzie. We brought some wines from Aquitaine and a bottle of an orange liqueur called Perigord. So good food and fab company.
Saturday again was warm and sunny and we went to the evening concert. Hmmm! More equipment ...

... run down and not loved as much. Fed and watered and off we go. 15.20 hrs made good time. Arrived tired. Oh oh. Lourdes has been taken over by cheap and cheerful tacky shops and disgusting cafes. What a sham. So many people believing in the legend of this place. All here for hope, to pray and cure. Wouldn't want to burst their bubble but? Words fail ...
