Chanaz morning day 5

We had a flat day walking along Le Rhone yesterday, and we are at a lovely little gite with our own room again (!) last night. Weather is fine with a few big clouds yesterday, but some nice breezes. It was 19 or 20 km yesterday. 16 + today. With some big ups and downs, over mountains between deep bends in the Rhone. By the end of the day (and before!) our feet, legs and shoulders hurt. I got a blister on one toe during steep descent into Seyssel on Tuesday.

We had a very lovely evening that night in Seyssel with elegant dinner made by our hostess Christine. In the morning Jacques (former pilgrim on a hiking trip) was playing guitar and singing and sang a goodbye song for us, Suzanne, by Leonard Cohen which some of you may know. So I walked along the Rhone singing snatches all day. I am sure it will make it into the next slide show.

Keep us posted on home events, and think of us huffing and puffing up the hills. There is so much more I could write, but time to walk!

We met the German women and our group of 3 and Jacques and his friend Michel all here in this little village last night. But today will be the last day for the women as the return home.

Onward to Yenne. The 3 have just departed, and I am catching up on email.
