Holy piss pot! It was a category 10+ day for rain today. Meaning we were wet to the underpants and wringing the water out of our insoles with our numb and club like blue fingers. The rain stopped just as we entered the Espace Bernadette where we are staying in Nevers. It is also the resting spot of the mortal remains of Saint Bernadette of Lourdes. We visited her earlier in the day and saw her tiny body and her wax coated face.
The town was named in honour of the many pilgrims who entered the town gates in the pouring rain uttering, “Never again” under their breath.
