Day Thirty Three

The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows. With each step, a flower blooms.

– Thich Nhat Hanh

Portomarín to Palas de Rei

Morning mist filled the beam of the torch and a rise put us back in clear air. The up hill stretches kept us warm in the cool dawn. In and out of cold air and mist, forest and clearings and then the sun rose lighting the valleys full of cloud.

While enjoying a lovely cup of tea Fi noticed Harry wander by and we had a happy reunion and walked with Harry for the rest of the day to Palas de Rei.

We covered 25km of good paths, went to the supermarket and back at the Albergue Fi cooked a great meal with complements flowing from Harry, Chuck (USA) and myself. 

We sat next to a wall covered with a map of the Camino and I was struck by how far we had walked and how close to Santiago we are now. Soon the gong will sound and it will be time to end this meditation.


It was a glorious day.
