Bright start to the morning after a good night's sleep. A light breakfast and then off to explore Arles. It's a fairly large town.

Unfortunately as we left a sandstorm began, whipped up by onshore winds, so sandblasted we gave up on the idea of a swim and headed ...

We talked about different places that we had been...I was very interested to hear about their walking the Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage route in Spain made famous by the Martin Sheen movie "The Way."
