And on the seventh day…

Well OK this isn’t our seventh day but it is Saturday and we “rested” today. We walked just to the opposite end of the village Puerta de la Reina and stopped to check into the next available albergue.

“Why even walk?” you may ask. Well there is a rule at almost all albergues that allow only one nights stay.

So today we will allow Allison’s feet to mend a bit. We’d love to see a miracle and have them heal overnight but the trials are part of the Camino I think. Several other people have small injuries, sprains, joint problems, etc at this stage.

There will only be a few pictures today.
Happy Birthday to my sister Nadine!

This is David. David is a British man that rides a bike around the Camino offering first aid to Pilgrims. He does this out of love for others and asks nothing in return.

Jeff Copley, David was given one of the first Maple Crosses that you made.
In exchange, he insisted we take some wildflower seeds to spread somewhere along the Camino.
