A River Runs Through It

The Nive River as seen from several different bridges in the center of St Jean Pied de Port, France. A mix of residences, hostels, restaurants, and churches – rustic and beautiful.

Soaking it in

The French Pyrenees and blue-gray skies are a fine backdrop for this small farm hut surrounded by lush green foliage.

 

Table for Two, Please!

… and ONLY one table for two!  Perhaps the restauranteur wants folks to know there IS a restaurant on the block, in which case, the bold colors definitely draw people to it!  The kicker about dinnertime in St Jean Pied de Port (as well as those in Spain for that matter), is that restaurants close down at about 2 or 3 and don’t open up again until 8!!  L o n g  siesta hours!! Hence, we continued to stroll along the quaint streets.
