After a communal breakfast in the old cellars with the other 8 or 10 pilgims, we set off
in the early morning mists with a couple of companions. As the mists cleared, we came across various
stone buildings of interest, before arriving at Montcuq itself for a coffee with some of our
fellow pilgrims from the night before and a visit to the 14th C. church of St Hilaire.
We continued to enjoy a relatively relaxed day, pausing to visit churches, on the mistaken
understanding that Lauzerte wasn't far and at the bottom of a pleasant valley.
This was one of Angus' major map reading errors! Not only was it further than expected,
it was at the TOP of a steep hill - the contour lines were up, not down!
The day turned into a long slog towards a distant hill, culminating in a steep climb
surrounded by roaring traffic, before we reached the hostel. Even the arrival was stressful,
as the hostess wanted to sort everything out at once, and we just wanted to collapse exhausted!
