Friday September 7th
We had spent a great night at our Gite in Montbonnet which was very new with nice clean beds and facilities. Had a great communal dinner last evening ( see pic). We had a 4 bed room with bathroom which we shared with Mick and Frances.
Started after breakfast into the cool mist with raincoats on but these were soon discarded as we warmed up. This was a beautiful stage although lots of hills and also a lot of downhill through what would have been water courses if it had been raining. The channels were lined with many rocks and boulders so had to take a lot of care with ankles and our sticks were a great help. T
We passed many beautiful buildings and farms again. One farm dog was scary but backed off at last minute when I spoke softly to him, if that hadn’t of worked I had my sticks at the ready.
Arrived at Monistrol-d’Allier about 130 pm so we had lazy afternoon catching up with washing and planning next few days and of course several drinks before a dinner in the hotel restaurant with our waiter who reminded us of Manual from Faulty Towers. It was a hilarious evening with great food and more drinks.
