On the first day we followed the Isle downstream to Saint-Astier, and on the other two days we made the crossing to the Dordogne. Much of this crossing was on a Roman road, still almost as uncompromisingly straight as it had been when it was built.
There was a slight improvement in the weather and we felt that we would soon have dry feet and be covered in sunscreen, which up till now had been a dead weight in our pack.
