Journey to Lourdes: Part One

Joining Like Mother, Like Daughter for some pretty, happy, funny and real times...


This is the beautiful day and scenery that greeted us as we entered Lourdes, France...
Bus Ride to Lourdes


Hanging out at the airport, waiting to board our flight to France.  These are, by far, by most favorite sweets.  


I snapped this picture from the bus ride to Lourdes as we crossed over the Gave de Pau.  I just love to see people getting their shops ready for the day, or sipping un cafe noir, or...fishermen fishing from the bridge in cool wader boots.  Funny.
The Gave de Pau rose alarmingly high while we were in Lourdes during our stay... That was not so funny.


My family came to Lourdes for a mission...to help our beloved malades.  When, in fact, it was ultimately they that helped us.
