It's Amazing how a tiny little symbol like this one can mean so much...It started to appear on the backs of the velo route signs as I followed down the coast of France. There is a great route that follows the coast pretty much the length of Breton all the way to Biarritz.
 
The rain stopped for a day or 2 but has started again. I met some other pilgrims outside the Cathedral in Bayonne. This was the first church I have encountered that offered any service for pilgrims. We found lodging at the Association Maison Diocesane in a suburb of Bayonne. A great big complex of some kind with a hundred rooms for travellers and conference goers.
 
 I'm going to get the train from here to San Jean Pied de Port. Hopefully, it won't be snowing up there.
The anxiety I feel at times can seem insurmountable. I just keep going. Sometimes just going home seems a better option. I just don't like being uncomfortable anymore. My reasoning is that as one who has guided in the outdoors for so long, I don't need to be miserable to prove my worth to any person, living or dead or for that matter God. I don't gotta prove nuthin to God that's for dang sure. I have this running dialogue pretty consistently about this relationship and that things are really quite good. All I need to do is trust...So far my experience has been most positive.

Good to know that you indeed found a place at the Association Maison Diocesane. I'd told them that you would arrive in about an hour, but never told you that I had told them.

Did you try to ride the unpaved mountain pass there?

Well said.

Hang in there, Sis.
