Navarrenx to Aroue 18km
An easy day today. I didn’t start till 9am and finished walking at 2.30pm after a long lunch in a church porch. I felt I was cheating somehow and not putting in a proper day’s work!
It was a wet morning as I crossed the bridge away from the town. Back in 1181 pilgrims had to ford this river. It wasn’t till 1182 that a bridge was built. The ramparts of the fortified town are on the far side of the river.
The weather is not always perfect on the trail! But spirits are always high and we are having fun despite the weather.
