Collioure to Banyuls

On July 4, we walked from Collioure to Banyuls.  According to the material we had it was 14 kilometers (about 8.5 miles) and should have taken about 4.5 hours.  My pedometer said it was 15.6 k. Our watches said it took 7 hours.  This is pretty much par for the course for us.  We didn't exactly get lost - since the Mediterranean was to our left, the mountains to our right, and we could see Banyuls in the distance for most of the way.  But we didn't exactly find all the right markers and pathways, either.  It was very beautiful. It was also very hot and sunny with absolutely no shade.  I've taken some little videos that I can't get loaded, but when I can, I'll load them. In the meantime, here is a photo of the COG on the trail.
