Our guests took the early train back to
for a few more days of sightseeing, and after a lazy morning in the apartment we felt we had to take advantage of Roberts’s day off and maybe a hike was just the thing - we hadn’t had enough in the past three days. Paris
We had both agreed while Hiking in the Mont-Dore region that Lac de Guéry was a spot we would return to. Monday turned out to be the day. Lauris fell asleep just before arriving so we all took a nap in the car before setting out on one of the marked trails. The trail we chose took us past the lake up to a waterfall before cutting through a meadow. We had a small snack there, lounging in the sun with a view of the Chaîne des Puys to the east. All the hikers passing us carried bouquets of daffodils and soon after passing through a pine forest and emerging in another meadow, I had a bouquet of my own.
