This was the first year that we were seriously affected by a health problem.
After walking eight days in Provence and the Drôme, from Saint-André-les-Alpes via Digne-les-Bains and Sisteron to Rémuzat, Keith’s kidney stone proved too much.

For the statistically-inclined, there is a spreadsheet that gives details of this walk.
The diary has been broken up in to the following sections:
