GR5 Day 2 - Don't Drink the Tadpoles

GR5 Day 2 - Don't Drink the Tadpoles

Les Chenes - Lac de Darbon

Very early start due to illegal squatting in field so we packed up and on the road again for 6.30! Nice wander along a lovely flat road and breakfast by the roadside by 9.30. Then just a shed load of ascent through forests and over cols. We have been attacked by horseflys, our insect repellent was pointless as just seems to act like an appetiser and then they even bite through clothes! I have been a mobile buffet and now I look like a very angry red dot to dot.

Finished walking at 5.30pm as we spotted an ideal wild camp spot from the path, over looking Lac De Darbon. It even has its own fire pit :), however nothing to burn though Jac does seem tempted to get rid of some kit to lighten her load.

The lake was very warm and lots of tadpoles were merrily swimming around so I was careful not to suck one up the water filter, even if it would have been a bit of free protein.

So tonight sitting atop of our camp spot watching the sun go down wearing all of my clothes, the mozzies are out so I'm going in.

Blisters still 1 for me but it's growing

Blisters for Jac 2

Horse fly bites me 22

Jac about 6

Poo in the woods nil for both ..... So far.
