Had a quick breakfast and headed out for La Cure with Ruth. We shared the trail with Christine and Christian for some time, starting with a stiff climb up to some cliffs. Got some beautiful views of Chapelle-Des-Bois from up there. Since Ruth and I had an eight-hour walk to La Cure, we said our goodbyes to Christine and Christian along the way, and picked up the pace.

Finally got to Les Rousses and decided to treat myself to some sorbet. Ruth got some really good ice cream with whipped cream. No harm done. We knew we’d burn it off by the time we got to La Cure. You can eat anything on the GR5 as long as you walk your 30 kilometers.

After what felt like forever, we reached La Cure and I met up with Bill, Ruth’s husband. He brought their dog, Nala, along too.  Yeah! More company!

Ruth had called ahead to see if there was any room at any of the gites in La Cure, but they were all full. So I ended up sleeping on the couch in Bill and Ruth’s hotel room. Slept like a log.
