I am fascinated by Horreos. I would like to have one in front of my home! Here is a link for more information: from the website:

A beautiful Horreo, pronounced = Oreo.

An old waymarker.

Sometimes I feel like I should look around and see what is behind me. Some of my best photos are a result of this “feeling”.

A Father, two sons from Germany, and a Pilgrim friend.

Just a few minutes from the campground (chalet) where we stayed last night was a great view of the entrance of the walled city, Navarrenx. I wanted to take a picture of the entrance. There was a pilgrim standing there. I waited to take my picture. As soon as he moved Vern recognized him as a Pilgrim who was at the Cathedral in Le Puy. We had the Pilgrim blessing on the same day, April 19th. Dominic from Switzerland started walking on the 19th and we started on the 20th.. This is the first time we have seen him since that day!

Today we saw our second Pilgrim pulling a cart! His wife close behind, explaining how hard it is on his back to carry the backpack. He was moving quickly.
