Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
‘Till you find your dream.
Climb Every Mountain from The Sound of Music
Today was the second day for climbing mountains. The altitude gain was the same as yesterday, but at a lower grade. But make no mistake, it was up and it was continuously up. The thing is just when I got tired and had to stop I would look around and see the most magnificent sights.
“Oh my goodness!” Was my phrase of the day 😮
Of course there were other sights to see as well. We had to be very careful where we walked because the road was filled with horse poop, cow patties, sheep dip, and something that looked suspiciously like very dark blueberries, but didn’t smell like blueberries at all 💩
We also crossed over the frontier from France into Spain.
Here I am at the border trying to jump for joy 😄
This truly is an amazing place. My friend Gaye described it as magical and she’s right. It’s so beautiful and I almost hate to take a picture because I know that a photograph will never capture the immense beauty of this place.
For now it’s dinner time and after we will go to the church for the blessing of the pilgrims. I guess I am becoming a pilgrim.
