I’m still figuring out WordPress…just inadvertently erased this morning’s post about the rainy weather.

Here it is May 31st and the sky is a gloomy grey, the wind is blowing, and its been raining on and off for the last 24 hours. The newscasters are saying it’s the coldest Spring since 1816. They interviewed shepherds in the Pyrennes…and it’s snowing! Perhaps this is the first step of the pilgrimage for me: to let go of worrying about it. The weather predictions for St. Jean Pied-de-Port, where I begin walking next week, are for fair skies and rising temperatures. May it be so!

Today we hiked up to the Cite of Corcassonne, home of the Cathars, and an amazing medieval monument. There’s a whole medieval town within the castle, with winding streets, cute squares with cafes, and a cathedral.

    The walled town sounds absolutely enchanting. The weather sounds less so. Weather is inherently humbling because we can only adapt, we cannot control. I am enjoying your posts so much. XOX Anita


    • Hi Anita: I’m glad you are enjoying the blog. I’m putting more photos on Facebook if you have access to that. Yes, I am trying to chill out regarding the weather, it’s definitely beyond my control. Being a Bay Area person makes for a naive attitude towards unpredictable weather. We are moving up towards St. Jean, where I begin the Camino. Staying in Lourdes tonight. Miss you! Beth
