Oradour sur Vayres to St Saud Lacoussiere.

A long day we knew it would be, campsites seem few and far between in the forests on the watershed, 23 miles from 0740 to 1630. Thanks to Peter at Maison Taupe for getting up to get us started early. A good breakfast always starts the day well. Pleasant walking through the woods and fields mostly shaded. We made a great landfall in Pensol at lunch time. We tried to make it for1300 in case there was a picnic table to eat on, it’s only a small village, there was and a bar and public toilets and a map of the surrounding area with some useful walks on it. Full marks Pensol and most unexpected.
We then continued on the GR 456 to the point where it formally diverges from the GR4, the way at this point as we knew is one of the major pilgrimage routes across France and sign posts seem to have been adopted and we presume paid for by Gas de France.
Tonight’s campsite is one of the most expensive at 18Euros (perhaps we have been spoilt by the small municipals at under 5 per night). But tomorrow we stay in a real Chateau that welcomes pilgrims and does Chambre D’Hotes with reductions, first we have to get there, another big day.
