Wine is constant proof that God loves us…

Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy. -Benjamin Franklin

I left Estella this morning and arrived at the Fuente de Vino after about 2 hours. It is a fountain that pours both water and wine. The plaque on the wall reads, “If you want to go to Santiago with strength and vitality, of this great wine have a drink and toast to happiness.” From there I climbed to the town of Villamayor de Monjardin which is a peak that overlooks the town of Arqueta. The Way then descends and continues on for 7 miles of flat road into Los Arcos. Many pilgrims have blisters now- many are very unsightly and painful. I am thankful my feet are doing great- So far so good.

  1. I pray for you each day…especially for no blisters or pain in your feet. Water and wine? Sounds like a good place to rest!

  2. Love following you!! So glad that you are getting along fine with no foot problems. Saw John the other night at Jim Carney’s Hawk party. He’s looking good.
