April 28, 2018: Saturday
This is always the most difficult post to write. I've always got so many mixed emotions when arriving here. Is there any really important item I've missed on this years blog?
We've been blessed with "success" on all 5 of our Spanish Caminos, and by that I mean that neither injury, nor illness, nor weather, nor any other obstacle has ever prevented us from walking into Santiago as planned. But success on Camino could have so many definitions. Our friend James was not able to walk into Santiago in 2016, and I know that specific Camino was one of his best journeys.
I've come to believe that a good Camino is soul cleansing. The spiritual and physical are separate, but deeply connected. This connection is revealed in Camino, just as it is around the Eucharistic table mentioned in yesterday's post.
I think several photos from around the city might be the best way to end this years journey. (for unknown reasons, these pictures are not in chronological order).
