Quillan was a small town at the top of the High Valley of the River Aude.  The surrounding mountains made the weather unpredictable and dark clouds hung over the high peaks surrounding us.  The weather was cooler there but  the sun did shine and we had a lovely lunch sitting outside in the town square by the river.  We met up with Debbie Savage who was enjoying a sabbatical in the area having rented a little house close to our campsite.
