I left Patricia’s place quite early because she had to go to work. She dropped me off by the river Drome which is said to be the very last unexploited river left in France.
This meant that my walking plan got a little longer since she lives up in the hills east of Loriol. But with the scenery along side the river made it very much worth the extra kilometers.
I arrived in Montélimar late in the afternoon. I was very tired and I was really going to need the day of rest at Anne’s. I wasn’t quite well from the horrible fever I had and still hadn’t recovered my strength fully.
