It was foggy. We climbed up out of Corcubión in the fog and an endless supply from the sea drifted by us all morning. It gave a mystical feeling to the countryside. We descended to the long beach at Finisterre, took off our boots and walked along the sand. The waves lapped at our feet and brought closure to our long journey. Cloaked in fog we went into the sea and felt our feet leave the earth that has supported us for over 2300 km. It was a bracing swim but the sea was calm and clear. It just disappeared into the mist and it was like only Fi and I existed.
After a feast and a celebration drink at restaurant La Frontera we walked to the lighthouse and the 0km milestone to officially finish our journey but in our heart we knew the swim in the ocean was the end. We have walked the ends of the earth and the whole time, inside, we have been walking to ourselves. It has been a beautiful journey.
We are staying at Hotel SempreFisterra which is nice but checkin isn’t until 4pm!
We ate dinner at etel & pan just diwn the street from where we are staying. A very nice veggie burger with artesian beer.
