Half a million step Camino

May 31, 2018

This morning our Camino ended in Vega de Ribadesella a beautiful little nook tucked on the edge of the Bay of Biscay. We walked further than expected but our journeys end was “Tu Casa” a bohemian stone albergue nestled amongst the hedgerows. It was the right place to be…. a home filled with love & dream catchers. An owner, a seasoned pilgrim who’s journey had taken her to many continents, filling us with her wisdom & her food foraged from land around. Nasturtium salad, bamboo bake to mention but a few of her delights. In the softness of duvets we reflected on our Camino started 15days ago. Over half a million steps covered through Basque lands, Cantabria & ending in the Asturias. We walked in strong sun & soaking rain. We walked up sharp steep mountain sides & soft long sandy beaches. We met folks from five continents & many we slept with in shared dormitories. Though we did treat ourselves to pensions once or twice when the luxury of a hot bath was hard to resist. We ate many tortillas & probably far too many baguettes while a bar of chocolate was our forever companion ( well mine really lol)

But today we prepare to head to Santander in the morning

June 1st tonys mums 5th anniversary.

Tomorrow Tony will scatter a little part of her ashes amongst the rocks & sea that hold the memories of the little child who spent fourteen years of her childhood in this beautiful part of the world.
