Beautiful views of the Pyrenees most of today. A pretty easy 13 mile hike.
Finished in the small town of Aroue which has very few lodging and food options, so like many pilgrims, I got a ride to the much larger Saint-Palais down the road. It’s a lovely village and I have a nice hotel room right on the town square.
Two days of hiking left in France, then a rest day on Sunday. Monday, I enter Spain.

Bill, I really enjoy reading about your travels every day. When do you actually book your room for each night? Is there a chance you won’t have a place to stay?
Sounds like an enjoyable day. I have a follow up to Mary’s question a few days ago about pilgrims today vs centuries ago. Modern pilgrims will presumably catch a ride to the airport. How did the pilgrims from yesteryear get back home?
This I know… they walked! Pilgrimage was a two way trip for them. Some still do this today, but you’re right, most catch a flight or train from Santiago!
The Pyrenees cometh! Soon on to Spain! Hang in there. Making great progress.
