After a communal breakfast, we said goodbye to the pilgrimn group from the hostel, some of
whom were off to Rocamadour from whence we'd come, and had a look around Vers and its church and chapel.
We had been told of a short-cut along a deserted railway, and although we were hesitant, the rail bridge
had a footway, so we crossed without difficulty. We had a pleasant walk along the scenic banks of the Lot,
with riverside villages reflected on the calm river. We also had the opportunity of watching boats
travelling through the canal locks. Arriving in Cahors itself, we checked into the hostel, and then had a look around.
The cathedral and cloisters were very impressive, and Sue even had the opportunity to read the psalm at the evening service.
We visited the pilgrim welcoming office at the end of town, and investigated the remains of a roman amphitheatre in an underground car park!
We finished the day with pasta, tuna and tinned vegetables cooked up in the outdoor kitchen and accompanied by a bottle of Cahors wine.
