Coming a long way, we suddenly found ourselves stepping back into a scene that seemed engrossed in the past. Once inside Orions Cottage, below a clear night that showed us the corresponding constellation, we found the heart and sweetness of the cottage that has been the home of many. Browsing through the titles of the library on the shelves, we found a beautiful and lovely collection of classic writing for the sensible pilgrim. Thank you for an unforgettable week.
