The walk today was mostly through woods on natural paths. The number of pilgrims doing this journey is greatly reduced. I think I saw fewer than a couple dozen all day whereas the crowd into Santiago yesterday numbered in the hundreds or more plus tourists. Yesterday, I waited two hours in line to get my Compostella and there were nine stations writing the precious document for all the anxious peregrinos.
Today was a great day, walking through the morning mist, to think about the many blessings I’ve received over the last month, mostly, the support of a very loving wife and family and friends to put up with me traipsing across northern Spain. Today I had the opportunity to again be grateful for my newfound Camino awareness. With all the emotions of yesterday and a cluttered mind, I easily could have missed what an amazing blessing this is.
Tom, your sharing your journey is a blessing for us,
