Well strengthened we leave our accommodation in the early morning and march first along the river Guiers, then we cross a motorway and the path begins to rise.
Again and again there are beautiful views.
This is what the farms look like here.
Holzkreuz in La Vigne mit Detail des Kreuzes
The trail is exceptionally well marked.
The washhouses are no longer needed.
At the hamlet of Bruyere we look towards the French Alps - Grenoble is not far.
The Way of St. James leads over quiet, peaceful field paths.
Les Abrets, time for lunch
The church of Les Abrets. We have not visited it. Therefore there are no other pictures of Thérèse and the parish priest of Ars.
We already know the two pilgrims from Serrières.
After the flat section, the path climbs up again; this is quite sweaty in the blazing sun.
From a hill there is a beautiful view of Les Abrets.
Beautiful, shady paths take us to Valencogne.
Our stage goal has been reached. The private quarters of Mme Blanc. We felt very comfortable here.
By the way, she speaks English very well!
We took another walk into the village without our backpack.
