And On The Seventh Day, We Rest

It had been my plan to walk one more day – from Finisterre to Muxia. Muxia is reported to be lovely, and the walk between the two places is supposed to be a great one. That was the plan for today.

But when I stood at the ocean yesterday, I had a sense that I was finished walking, something I did not feel when I stood in the square in front of the Cathedral in Santiago.

The albergue at which I am staying is a gem. Friendly, welcoming hospitaleras, a communal vegetarian meal in the evening, a meditation room, a nearby church with a noon Sunday Mass, and close access to a beach.

I made the decision last night to stay here one more night. So I will spend this day resting, processing some of the experiences of these past five weeks, sitting on a meditation cushion and in church, and walking on the beach.

Sounds like a good Sabbath day to me.

  1. Susan, your post for arriving came up in my memories on FB today, as I had shared it back in 2013. I have been in the midst of reliving my own camino memories each day from 9/17 to today. We walked from 9/18/16 until arriving in Santiago on 10/22/16. Revisiting that post and reading a few others warms my heart… I followed your posts so closely then, never imagining tht I would take the same journey. Peace to you Susan, and may you return. Ultreia!
