In the name of God…

In the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you. – Leo Tolstoy

Day 30. Today was a short day; only 2 1/2 hours so I had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful scenery walking to Triacastela. I walked through the pass into Galicia and it was foggy, cool, damp, and lush with vegetation.  Cattle could be seen in fields along the Camino enjoying the cool morning. Today is a somewhat rest day and tomorrow starts the final 7 days of walking before hitting Santiago.  At my lodging I met Marji from North Carolina who has an injured foot and arrived here by cab. As I walked through town I ran into Kevin and Charlotte who will end their Camino tomorrow in Sarria. They will return in August to walk the final stretch into Santiago with their son.

  1. Kathy……I love love love that first picture today of the barb wire fence and the fog. 7 more days ….I’m sure that it will be bittersweet to reach the end of your journey. What an amazing accomplishment. I’m with you in spirit.
