Sarlat to Les Eyzies de Tayac

13/7/12 Filled up at breakfast with lunch provisions. The roads were much easier to ride on – hills not so steep. Visited Marquay, a pretty little village for morning stop. On the way one of the bikers (Linda) slid on some gravel and sprained her thumb and grazed her chin and knees. We stopped until Sebastion picked her up. She was very unwell. Memories of another incident were prominently in my mind! It was a little upsetting.

Had lunch at a clearing before walking through the forest to the ruined castle – Chateau de Commarque, a medieval castle with cave dwellings! (see photos on Facebook).

Arrived in Les Eyzies around 4pm. Time for a bath before perusing the main street. They have a museum of natural pre-history! There was also a market outside the hotel. I am staying at Le Moulin de Beane which is about 50 metres away.

14/7/12 Today we move on to the Pyrenees and the hiking leg of the journey. I am going to look at the museum and around the shops. Today is Bastille Day – French public holiday.
