Camino ~ Ribadiso to Arca


Day 12 … Thursday, 13th September 2015

Wet, wet, wet.

It rained all night and the entire day. The saving grace is the beautiful paths with fresh geosmin and fragrance from eucalyptus trees.

Started late but it didn’t matter. The entire day was the same – cold, wet and dull.

Tomorrow I plan to end my Camino in Santiago. Tried to think of something meaningful to share but there’s nothing specific.

The guidebooks write about the physical, mental and spiritual journeys. Yes it’s all three and more. Yes it’s a personal journey but it’s one with many shared personal journeys.

I started writing this post last night but didn’t publish it. Feeling really drowsy, may have caught a cold.

Now this morning, I think I may stretch another day to end this Camino. Don’t really want to put a good book down.

So just for another day here on the Camino trail.

  1. Can almost smell the fresh feel of those fallen leaves and the damp undergrowth. The canopy of trees, hopefully, would minimised any soaking you might have received, I imagine. Not so hot for walking, perhaps, but a little more slippery under foot.

  2. No chance to edit what I’d written earlier, which is irritating, as I’d written ‘minimised’ rather than ‘minimise’, or ‘have minimised’, and being a perfectionist, as well as a pedant, I’m helpless to make any correction! All a bit pedestrian, I know! haha Hope your next day was a good one, pilgrim!
