Day Thirty Four. 22.1 Miles, 35.5 Kilometers.
We wanted to leave at 6:00 a.m. this morning. We thought we were walking 17 miles today. The Madame of the Gite was already up. She had prepared the table the evening before but decided to get up and visit with us.

We started the walk to Aire sur l’Adour. I am grateful for the dry day…just some mud but pretty good walking conditions. Daniel, Philippe and Monique passed us. I was able to get a picture of them…you have to be quick or they are gone.

When we arrived we stopped at the post office and picked up a package of supplements.
Before we left home in April we had arranged for our U.S. Primary election ballots to be mailed to this location. We also picked up the ballots, filled them out, and mailed them back.
Earlier in the day we had arranged to meet with John Tucker from Canada and have dinner. We chose a restaurant that serves pizza and went inside. At that moment two women that we have seen for days walked in. We invited them to join us. Soon another Pilgrim, and then another. The manager of the restaurant allowed us to keep adding more people. When we were almost finished with our meal Carmen and “crew” walked in.

We first met the four Pilgrims walking out of Figeac and have enjoyed seeing them every few days since then.
