Another Sunday on the trail in France, with the associated problems: 1. hunters, and 2. shops all closed. We set out from our B&B in the morning fog, ignoring our hosts' recommendation to make a detour into the town centre to buy provisions from one of the few shops open on a Sunday morning. Our backpacks felt so much lighter without supplies! And our tummies were still full of bread, coffee and homemade jam. (You eat a lot of bread when travelling in France!) We calculated that we would be in the town of La Val in time for lunch. And in fact we were, after a pleasant 12 km or so rambling between vineyards and along forest paths. With hunters audible in the distance, but only mountain bikers and joggers for company on the path.
