It was a reasonable bivvy last night, but it was cold enough this morning to start walking in my down jacket and gloves before stopping at an amazing bakery in Valfréjus to breakfast off croissants and hot chocolate. Then followed a walk by Mont Thabor down to a hut for a sandwich by a pleasant little lake. It's a cool, sunny, breezy day and the scenery is less grand than before, more Mediterranean - dry, many pine trees and lumpy scree mountains, which I'm not tempted to climb. Now I'm sitting in a little café in the valley having an amazing ice cream, a pastry and a very nice beer. Well, most people come to France to enjoy the food, so why shouldn't I?
