This morning we are only a short way from the Chemin. The paths today were very rocky. There were definitely some inclines but very manageable. We met our first couple from Spain today: Luis and Carmen. We saw them several times today. At about halfway to Limogne-en-Quercy there was a “Pause Station”. A former pilgrim was serving coffee for a donation. It was a great place to rest and get water. The books warn to carry the water that we need today so it was good to have a place to refill water if necessary.

One day while walking about two weeks ago I decided to have my hair cut. Ok, I’ve made the decision! The next several towns that had hair stylists were closed for Holiday. One town that had a hair stylist was closed between 12:30 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., it was 1:00 p.m. as we were walking through. Today in Limogne-en-Quercy I found a hair stylist, Alain De Saegher of Siz-O. He told me to come back in an hour. He spoke English, in fact he speaks many languages! When he was done cutting may hair he said that I looked like Marilyn Monroe……. from the back! We had a good laugh about that.

He told me about his Chambre d’Hote, (bed and breakfast), La Pi’ternelle in Salvagnac-Cajarc. I’m sure that it is lovely. If I lived in France I would drive to Alain’s shop in Limogne-en-Quercy!
Today while taking a break and sitting on a rock wall we saw two men walking toward us. One of the men we had just passed not long ago, the other one was Michel! We haven ‘t seen him in many days and was hoping that he was feeling better. It was good to see him and walk with him for awhile.
