I left Gap this morning in the blazing heat. I avoid forecasts as it makes no difference really. It clouded a little as the day wore on but remained very hot. I have consumed 9 litres of water with ORS today.
Most of the day I have been walking past orchards. Pears and Apples everywhere not yet ready for scrumping but they will be .
Many of the orchards are being watered by sprinklers. Where the spray went over the road it was heavenly to just stand there and cool off.
It is fitting therefore that I am now hidden away in the corner of an apple orchard in my tent. (hopefully no sprinklers!).
It is very peaceful here. All I can hear is the wind in the trees and a bird singing.
