Sabbatical July 1

Posted on July 3, 2014

July 1, 2014 –

My foot is stronger today but not yet 100%. Decide to try the last 110 kilometers from Sarria to Santiago. If I can’t make it I’ll have to take a taxi on as the buses don’t serve this part of the country. We left just before daybreak and set off into the rural Galacian countryside, passing through ancient forests of holm oaks and lanes that wind their way through stacked stone walled fields, hamlets and farmyards, and enjoy the parade of animals as the farmer herds them out to pasture. It was exciting to pass the 100 kilometer mark. I’m still not certain that my foot will be strong enough to complete the Camino but I want to try. We only go 12 kilometers and I’m thankful to stop at our albergue for the night for a much needed night’s rest.
