As we approach Santiago the numbers of pilgrims keeps increasing. I still stop now and then to realize how fortunate I am to be in Spain, and to share the experience with my brother and friends (new and old). The realization makes me happy.
Dinner last night with Margaret from Holland, a beautiful soul who is walking alone….. But never lonely.
The hills were tough today, but Jim is learning how to do frequent stops on the climbs. Sometimes it’s tough for me to watch him struggle, but his Camino belongs to him and I believe it’s more precious because it’s hard.
Shirley Funnamark learned about my walk on meetup. Her knee hurts every day but she keeps on walking and says she doesn’t want the experience to end.
I met David Lawson on meetup hikes in OC. David is a wizard with Google and a very strong walker. I believe (as Bogart once said) this could be the start of a beautiful friendship.
We are at another artisanal Pension/Albergue just 9 km from Santiago. Casa de Amancio👣I’ve loved bringing a diverse group together to share my love of Spain and the Camino.
