Vallon-en-Sully to la Châtre

This last section only took three days, but it should have taken four. The camping ground that we intended to stay at for the first night turned out to be no such thing, and it remains a mystery how their website could have been so comprehensively wrong. The result was that we had to keep going, in the end walking 37 km in 37°C of heat, and the final blow was finding that the village restaurant at our destination did not serve meals at night.

The following day was much easier, except that we suffered from hunger as we walked. Luckily, we arrived in the charming village of Ste-Sévère just in time for a magnificent three-course lunch, which was followed a few hours later by an equally magnificent four-course dinner.

Our final day, walking to la Châtre, gave us no trouble, and we were proud that after 750 km we did not have a single blister on any of our four feet.
