Walking With Angels September 16

We were very spoiled wraith our bedroom in the Abbae last night. We had duvets on the bed that were a foot thick and cool air coming through the window. Needless to say we had our first good sleep with no jet lag. The priest was waiting for us at the door at precisely 7:30am when he said breakfast would be ready. We were taken to the same private room where there were breads, raspberry  jam and cheese. He brought in a silver jug of coffee as well. After eating as much as we could I took Charlottes picture with him and we left, stopping at the bakery on the way out of town. Yesterday was a cake walk in comparison to the day before and today was a reasonably easy walking as well. We had rain today at times fairly heavy, but reached Martigny quite easily. After a number of inquiries we found the campground. We were a little surprised to see that we were booked into a dorm. I must say Charlotte was more surprised than I was. Anyway we are in with two young guys from the UK who are out walking in the Alps. We had a nice spaghetti dinner with beers tonight. Tomorrow we are off to Orsieres which is uphill for about six hours. Gradually we are heading for the top.
