Poured with rain overnight so we need to get out of here. Off to the coast then:
Reflecting on Lourdes, it is a nice place but the religious aspect to it overpowers everything else. Every other shop is selling stuff to do with the apparitions and cures, there are coaches clogging up the town most of the day trying to drop people off at loads of hotels, and, as we have found, the weather can be really rubbish. Of course people go to Lourdes for their own reasons, but for the casual tourist with no religious convictions, maybe not worth a special visit.
