"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.  Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called." A. A. Milne in Winnie-the-Pooh
We will begin our walk shorty.  Our journey might not seem much like Eating Honey, but I find the anticipation thrilling.
What will the weather bring?
Who will we meet?
What memorable conversations will take place?
How often will acts of charity be given? Received?
Will our bodies endure?
When will we come across sights which will impress?
So many more questions.  We celebrate the past, live in the moment, and anticipate the future.
The trip over here was good.  We plan to start walking tomorrow after visiting the Seville cathedral on Tuesday and the Roman ruins in Merida on Wednesday. We actually put on several miles finding and touring these sights. Great weather so far. Low 50F High 72, Dry.
Best food of the travel days: TGB Max at the The Good Burger on Martin Villa Street near the Seville cathedral.
Most Difficult:  Didn't take our boots off during the overnight flight, must remember this next time.
Line from R.A.'s journal:  The orange trees around the cathedral had both ripe fruit and blossoms, smelled amazing.

The largest altar piece ever made

Painting of St. James from early 1600s
