In Santiago

We arrived in Santiago on the 14th two days ahead of time in the rain, we walked 18 days and covered about 250 miles of up and down hill, lots of rocks and tough going. But it has been a fantastic experience.

We attended the pilgrim mass the day we arrive, got our Composela, the certificate that we had walked the whole way, and we stayed two nights in a 17th century monastery.

Yesterday we took the bus, how heavenly, to Finisterre, the end of the known world in medieval times. The sea was wild and beautiful and after a rainy morning the sun came out for our walk to the end of the earth.

This stage of our pilgrimage is over. We have endured and with the help of many made it here. It is a wonderful feeling.
