Robert Lois Stevenson and Modestine - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D3-02
by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

Memorial to Robert Lois Stevenson and Modestine in Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas. A nice memorial given Robert Lois Stevenson never intended to visit Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas but he got lost looking for his intended commune for the night, the nearby Lac de Bouchet. He stayed in Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas on September 22, 1878, some 140 years before us :)

Day 3 of 12 - Le Bouchet-Saint-Nicolas to Langogne: Walking the Chemin de Stevenson (GR 70 Robert Louis Stevenson Trail) in the south of France.
