Lac du Braussau


After a filling communal breakfast, we said goodbye to our hosts and set off with a couple of other pilgrims, and had our first views of the snow covered Pyrenees in the distance. We also came across a Rue du Lyonaisse, which we photographed for the couple from lyon. The way was pleasantly flat, with distance glimpses of the Pyrenees, until we left our companions and headed cross-country at Sorbets to head away from the Via Podiensis towards the Via Lemovicensis (Voie de Vézelay) and then on to Belloc. We stopped at two "Mairies" to get pilgrim stamps on our way, in one of which we got to chat with the mayor and were offered coffee. We stooped for steak and chips in Geaune, which turned out to have been a good move, because it ended up being a long day. What the mayor had not warned us that the route involved a lot of busy roads, and turned out to be longer than expected, so we arrived exhausted at the small, modern but functional AirBnB we had booked. Sue even staggered to the shops, we had a simple meal (with wine) and collapsed into the comfortable bed.
