We left Chantonnay before sunrise and walked the first 15km on road and tracks along fields. We saw blooming sunflowers, apple orchards, a deer and a snake. Then as the day got hotter we walked the next 10km through forests which was lovely. We are staying with Mme Blanche today who welcomes pilgrims with an open heart and a cold beer.
She is 82 years young and has welcomed us into her home like family.
Mme Blanche uses a translation app on her iPad to communicate with us. She has been accepting pilgrims into her home for 13 years now as the way passes right by it. She cooked us some lovely vegetarian food.
