My day on the trail began in a light rain which soon transformed into a steady downpour. But guess what? I loved every minute of it.
Thank you REI. Having all the right equipment made walking in the rain a joyful experience.
Around midday the rain stopped completely and I had a lovely picnic lunch of local blue cheese, dried apricots and artisanal bread. I was in heaven.
Tonight I'm staying in a nice hotel in Aumont-Aubrac, and at this moment it is pouring outside and I'm watching the lightning flash while sipping hot chocolate. I'm still in heaven.
