Excerpts from Geoff and Lyn’s blog
Day 14 was our First Rest Day at Cahors. It was a Wednesday – market day. The area in front of the nearby cathedral was filled with stalls laden with fresh vegetables and fruit, meats, cheeses, spices, flowers and clothes. A few musicians were in operation to enhance the wonderful ambience of the market.
Day 29 The last day. The route wound through undulating farmland with long flat stretches. It was nowhere near as punishing as yesterday. Under a cloudless sky, I relished picking the last handful of wild cherries I’ll see in a long while. It was a fitting finish to a spectacular 750 kms walk.
When we sighted our Camino Le Puy goal, St Jean-Pied-de-Port, at 2:30 pm, we made our way excitedly to the familiar gite from which we had set out 3 years ago for our 1st Camino: the Camino Frances.
