11 miles today. Cool and rainy in the AM but cleared up after about 90 minutes of walking.
I have one more short day tomorrow, then four long ones in a row. My leg is getting better, so I’m pretty confident, but if I have issues I’ll adjust. Only 8 more days of hiking left in France.
Bill, have you picked up any French?
I’m embarrassed to say, not a lot. I know a few basic things, but so many people know a little English that it’s been easy to get by.
I think I’m going to work on my Italian again when I get home. Languages are hard for me to learn, but seeing so many bilingual people makes me want to try.

Those vineyards are gorgeous!
I’m reinvigorated by your resolve to learn Italian. I’ve heard good things about Duolingo. Bob is a big fan. And my daughter has been using it for a long time. I tried it for a few days, but this work thing is really starting to crimp my lifestyle! I’ll try again after I retire.
Looks amazing Bill! So glad you are doing this and sharing it with all of us. Myron and I will miss you tomorrow at our Hawaii tailgate, please stop by sometime this fall when you are back from this amazing experience!
Keep it going Bill! Enjoying your posts. I hope you are spreading our campaign message abroad! I’m telling people I have a grass roots effort going on in Europe 😉
They love you in France. You’ll get all the votes.
Champagne grapes are very small. So it could be the type of grape. Who knows. Very pretty orchards.
I saw “raisin” grapes on sale in the store. I think that’s what they are.
