After a huge feast last night we thought we had better get out for a walk today and besides it was one of the sunniest days we had in two weeks.
Our destination was the village of Besse, where we followed an old Roman travelling route, probably one of many connecting the Lot and Dordogne valleys. The track looped around back on itself offering a 7 km challenge for those with young, short legs. Those with longer legs probably took more strain on the back as the shorter legs took turns to "ride up high".
It was a nice walk, lots of autumn colour and even a companion stray dog - who seemed to know the track very well. The older parts of the track still had a remnants of a packed stone surface with wheel ruts, there were also many ancient walls and a few huts. It was very cool. The young legs are off to bed early the old ones are resting in front of the fire watching UK Dancing with the Stars. I'm stuck here on the computer as usual but not complaining.
