Summary

In 2003, Neil started the walk with his sister, Anne and his mother, Margaret. Margaret died in April 2011 and Anne died in June 2011. Neil is now walking alone.

This part of France is flat and agricultural. It is not the most interesting walking area espicially as the population density increases towards Marseille. The Saturday walk suffered from areas where the walking would have been delightful but they were fenced off to military standards to protect the last remaining wild areas from the ravages of the humans. This is likely to get worse past Marseille and towards Nice and Cannes.


Neil drove from Beccles to Luton, taking in the 2011-02-20_52_0 geohash on the way. This only added seven miles to the journey. The flight to from Luton to Nîmes was on-time and as the weather was pleasant, he walked the 14km from the airport to his hotel. The navette was there waiting but the indirect walk avoiding the busy roads seemed like a better idea. It's a good way to clear the journey stress. The walk is logged on wikiloc

There was almond blossom, blackthorn and flowering mimosa as well as the usual dasies and wild cabbages. It's nice coming to a warmer land with tee shirt weather. In England it was below 5o and there were only a few grudging snow drops in flower.

All routine. Parking is cheaper at Luton. Got searched again.
