Day 2. Livinhac-le-Haut to Figeac.
That morning after a wonderful breakfast, we were getting our bags ready. We could see some pilgrims walking by our bedroom’s window. We were eager to join them as fast as we could. There was fog. It did not stay like that all day. It was usually getting warmer after an hour and had to strip some layers.
We stopped at a chapel with very old frescoes ( XIII century).
Again we met with Thomas, the German walker. If you stay in the same city there is good chance you are going to see the same people from time to time. He was a friendly man. We enjoyed connecting with other walkers.
Then we heard some gun shots. Oh ! I knew it was hunting season but it was a bit scary. We saw a man and his dog. I took time to talk with him and asked him if I could take a photo. He did not mind. So here it is with his dog.
My stomach started to tell me it was time to eat. Luckily we found a picnic table by the church in St-Felix. There was also some public washrooms nearby. It is a good thing if you don’t want to have to put your pants down in the nature .
We arrived in Figeac. A much bigger town than our last stop. We found our gîte. Although we were a bit tired , we decided it would be nice to visit the area. We ended up walking slowly with a couple from Quebec. We bought some local beer and wine for the dinner . We enjoyed the architecture of Figeac. We did not have time or energy to wander too far but this trip was not really about sightseeing.
Dinner with other pilgrims was a good time to share our stories. We were making plans to walk with our friends ( the 3 friendly pilgrims from France) the next day. Nobody wanted to stay up very late. We all needed a good night of sleep. More on our travel on the camino in France next week. Thanks for reading. Always a pleasure to read your comments.
