The Pilgrimage!

Look what we found! 

It´s amazing, but you can pretty much walk anywhere around our area and find the Camino de Santiago. It is a pilgrimage path that goes from France all the way to the farthest eastern border of Spain, ending in the city of Santiago de Compostela. 

We have never done the pilgrimage, but we have visited the beautiful city of Santiago. It is said to be the burying place of James the apostle, who is considered to have brought the Gospel to the Iberian Peninsula and who miraculously saved the Christians from the Muslims. 

It was very much by accident last Saturday that we stumbled on part of this path. We decided to hike where we had never hiked before. Seeking adventure and new sites. 

However, the sites brought back many wonderful memories of the country orchards where I grew up in New York. 

Our dog, Toro, had so much fun! 

It was a good two hour hike. I calculated only the 20 minute intervals that I was constantly moving. There were even some hills! That was some good back end workout there!  

It´s a very relaxing and enjoyable way to fit your exercise into your weekend. While the weather is still nice, let´s get out there and enjoy it. 

Have you been hiking lately?
