The sun shone as we headed out in high 40-degree weather. Perfect. The 9-mile day had a lot of hills, both up and down. A mile or more uphill, a mile or more descent, a few level areas .... through high pasture lands, forests, and farms.
We are staying at an agricultural accommodation, Ferme de Barry, with a choice of private rooms (us) or shared dorms (not us). The hosts fixed a meal for us featuring a local cheese specialty, aligot.
Pam and James have arrived in Le Puy. We expect them to catch up to us tomorrow.
