We eventually made it to Lourdes

It took us a longer than planned to get our rental car in Montpellier, and then the drive took longer than planned, but eventually we arrived in Lourdes well before sunset. The hotel is not bad, and the manager was amenable to letting us leave two hours late tomorrow.

We arrived in Lourdes quite hungry because of all our delays, but as we headed out to dinner, we realized we were about to miss the best light of the day, so we turned around and headed to the shrine. In addition to getting some photos of the basilica and grotto, we discovered a candlelight Marian procession was about to start at 9 pm, so we joined in.

We didn’t get our feeding until after 10 pm, and it was at a tourist snack bar, but it was worth a couple hours of hunger.

  1. Gotta have food man! There’s an 8 hour time difference I think from Las Vegas, maybe 7 hours for you guys… Love the architecture of the church, wow!
