Rain, Rain, Rain

Elaine Davidson has a shop in Edinburgh and saw here on the street, totally by accident, of course because of her very strange appearance she stood out. I have to find Jim's pictures of her.

Medieval Villaga of Bega

An early start to your day means unbeatable sunrise views as you drive along the mountains. This small-group day trip from Barcelona gives you a glimpse into the history, culture, and landscapes of 3 different countries in the Pyrenees: France, Andorra, and Spain.Your first stop is the medieval village of Bagà, located in the heart of the natural park Cadí-Moixeró. Wander through the central square and the medieval church before crossing the border into France, where a traditional French breakfast at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Mont-Louis awaits you. St. Esteve de Bagà is the parish church of the town, built between the 14th and 15th centuries. Santuari de la Mare de Déu del Paller is a neoclassical sanctuary two km outside of town, dedicated to the town's patroness, the “Virgin of the Haystack” Plaça Porxada, the town's central square, built in the 13th century
