Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

May 30

I made it to Santa Domingo de Calzada, and still it rains. We walked through mud today that stuck in massive clumps to the boots.


As with so many of the towns we walk through, cathedrals are central.




I enjoyed this clever water sculpture for several minutes before realizing that its purpose was to help pilgrims clean the mud from their boots.
