the next stop is miramont-sensacq
I have a sense that the end is near. My walk to the base of the Pyrénées and to Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port will soon end. Furthermore, since I am writing and posting this blog after the end of the pilgrimage, I know that the last of my posts for the chemin will stop, will be finished. I will have shown each day in pictures.
On this day I walk by a reservoir and past fields of corn, lots of fields of corn, more fields of corn than one finds in Kansas. At least it feels that way.
DAY 29 de Aire-sur-l’Adour à Miramont-Sensacq (peut-être 20km) sur Le Chemin de Saint-Jacques-de-Compostelle.
Minor roads and tracks are the paths. The usual red and white stripes that mark the way are present, but I see other markers as well. Blue and yellow shells (scallop shells) begin to appear.
Miramont-Sensacq is the destination. It is a small village with few amenities. I stayed the night at the gîte d’étape communal.
Louis and Lorraine and Béatrice, what can I say? Your smiles each time we crossed paths lit up the day. You were to me like someone who always had chocolate. (Click on any photo to see it larger and in more detail.)
Through a good part of the day this horse and carriage wound round and round through the streets, going no where in particular. (Click on any photo to see it larger and in more detail.)
Thank you for your kind words, Michael. Be assured that it was always a pleasure to meet you too!
Lorraine & Louis
PS What a traveller you are!
Thank you, Lorraine.
Maybe they always did (have chocolat, that is…)
