Day 28, Roya

Day 28, Tuesday September 6
Bousieyas to Roya

A short day of good hiking and we took our time at the tourist office in Auron followed by a leisurely restaurant lunch. Good weather.

One week to go! We will take the option in a few days of leaving the GR5 to follow the GR52 to Menton on the Mediterranean, just beside the border with Italy. The GR52 option is one day longer and a little more difficult than ending in Nice, but more scenic than the last part of the GR5. After a day in Menton we’ll go to Nice, probably 30 minutes by bus or train.

Roya is a tiny hamlet in a lovely valley. The gîte is full tonight, except for us all French hikers. Several long days coming up but the weather looks good.
