With only 14km to Saint-Hilaire-La-Palud we set off after a leisurely breakfast. Walking along a network of crisscrossing canals we arrived by mid-day.
This is the last village of the last stage in the Vendée region. Tomorrow we walk into Charente-Maritime. The guide for this region is a little more sketchy so it will be interesting to see if it is well marked. Actually there is no guide between here and Mauzé-sur-le-Mignon (the first village of the Charente-Maritime guide) which we think is about 15km.
The internet is only lapping on the banks of the canals in this area, phone reception is pretty terrible. I hope it gets better tomorrow because we may need Google Maps.
Our Chambre d’hôte (B&B) accomodation (€70) is right next to the church at the end of the stage and next to a pizza restaurant.
This ladybug took a shine to my t-shirt, I think she liked the colour
