Rob was very pleased to know that he was not alone in the tic count. He has had 5, but today was my turn to get 1. Mind you, he is still ahead on wasp stings, he's had 2 on his ankle - I reckon they like his bright red shoes. Between us we have had a few bites from various annoying insects. But only 1 tiny blister in over 900km. And we have both taken a tumble but remained unhurt.
It was a pretty walk today - with an incredibly long descent followed by a long climb up a very rocky track - to the lovely Oix where we are staying in a renovated 15th century house. The stone walls are several feet thick and there are wooden beams everywhere. Lovely.
