This is being posted two days late, I’m sorry, because of travel and lousy internet at my current hotel in France. Portugal has the best internet ever!!
Last day of the tour – no walking – most everyone slept in.
We’re staying in the luxurious San Bieito – the same hotel we stayed in last tour. Only a few hundred meters from the Cathedral.
At 11am some of us headed off for the midday Mass, and were fortunate to see the swinging of the Botafumierio – a surprising highlight of the tour.
Later in the afternoon we did some group portraits –
We then hopped in our charter bus which took us to Cape Finisterre – the End of the World, and the end of our tour.
We had an early dinner at one of the best seafood restaurants in Galicia – then drove up to the Cape and watched the sun go down.
It was a perfect end to the tour – time to relax, reflect on the last two weeks, and consider life after the Camino.
This was a wonderful and deeply moving tour with a bunch very special people… and we all felt sad that it had to come to an end… but for many, it will be just the start.
