|Stations of the Cross|
We had no particular destination in mind but Paul had printed off a page with some things to see in the area of St. Girons. We had driven about 90 minutes and hadn't seen anything interesting when we turned a corner in the road and both said "What is that? We've got to check it out."
We had stumbled up Eglise (Church) de Raynaude. But what really caught our attention was the Chemin de Croix - the Stations of the Cross. What we first thought might be individual burial vaults on the top of the hill behind the church turned out to be a beautiful and humble way to follow the path of Jesus Christ during his last few days and the walk to the top of the hill for his crucifixion.

The very last station had a couple of notebooks and a pen where you could write your thoughts or a prayer to God. I did not leave a message of my own but read a few from previous visitors. It was a wonderful experience.
My husband and I tried to capture this beautiful spot in our photos - but being there in person was a real treat.
