Clare, who has been here these last two weeks left today, flying from Biarritz airport early this morning. She reports that, on average between 3 and 4 pilgrims have stopped by each day over these last two weeks, with as many as 15 on Saturday a week ago. Many stop to take their lunch in the garden (and use the WC!) and indeed one couple had been encouraged to eat their lunch here by someone they met in the village. This is an encouraging development for it shows that our project is beginning to be known about in the village.
Today a group of fourladies – two French, one German, one Danish – lingered here over their lunch. One was sufficiently moved by one of our ‘reflection sheets’ that she photographed it. I think it may have been this one. (Click on it to see the full text.)
