Thursday, July 1 – Walked from Cahuzac to Castelnau-de-Montmirail – 10.5 kms.

by

In Castelnau-de-Montmirail stayed in Hotel des Consul on the Place des Arcades in the middle of the town. Very agreeable village on high and comfortable room with a pool. Swam. Ate in the hotel’s restaurant outside. Watched Irish group drink beer. On the trail we met a Dutch couple who were walking having their backpacks moved for them. We are meeting very few other hikers on this route. Following the GR basilage (grande randonee trail markers) we managed to find ourselves on some other trail. Finally, in Broze, a hameau (hamlet), we asked an English resident about to put his home up for sale how to get back on track. He sent us off in the right direction on roads back to Castelnau. (There must be a second GR here?)
