At last a goat


At last a goat, originally uploaded by Campobello Island.

One thing I have wished that I would see more of is the goats but so far not too many and I will be in the Basque country soon where it is all dairy sheep. I will be glad to see that too because they make a sheeps milk cxheese there that I love.

I have had a problem finding a computer lately that will let me upload photos but where I'm staying tonight I'm using a little netbook like the one I have back home. So if you check the flickr account there are 40 new photos, lots of flowers because I'm finding more everyday. I'm also asking for the help of my European friends to identify some of them for me.

Today was a beautiful day after the rain of yesterday and this afternoon I was passed by this very nice mode of transportation, I think I need one.

Just what I need.

Just what I need

Tonight I'm on a small farm/gite with two pet goats who of course are eating all the wrong plants, like the prized new palm tree. The couple who run the giet are from Belgium and are very involved in water conservation so I have had my first expereince with a composting toilet and I must say I have been pleasantly surprised.

Composting Toilet

It is in the bathroom attached to my room and is completely odor free in case you don't know how they work, like I didn4t a few hours ago, it is a veey simple process you take wood shavings from the compartment on the back and cover whatever you deposit in the toilet. When that container is full it is removed and added to the compost outside. Very simple clean and odor free and no wasted water.

I have a short day planned for tomorrow only 11 or 12 KM to Aire-sur-l'Adour which will only leave 152 KM to Saint-Jean-Pied-De-Port so hopefully I will have time to go to Le Puy and walk from there to Conques before I go to Paris on April 12th.
