Reflections on Walking the Camino, and Beyond
Reverend Beth Lind Foote is retracing her third Camino on her blog One Footestep at a Time. We met each other at the St. James Day Celebration on July 25th at Newman Hall in Berkeley, an event organized by the Northern California chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino. We chatted about Camino stories and shared some blogging tips while enjoying a lavish potluck lunch with Spanish wine. As Beth said, “It was fun to ‘talk Camino’ and be with fellow Peregrinos.”
Beth intended to walk the Camino Frances all in one go, but ended up walking it in three trips over three seasons, in 2013 and 2015. In her latest post, Beth shares lovely photos of the Mansilla de las Mulas countryside, marvels at an unattended burn pile, and enjoys the “best bed on the Camino.” She contemplates the remaining 18 kilometers until finishing “the missing link.”
Back at the hotel, my room faced the church. The stone glowed in the evening light. I rested on my “best bed on the Camino,” with ice on my ankle and watched the changing light. One of my stork friends was hanging out on the roof.
Stay tuned for Beth’s Camino 3.0, her last day of walking into Leon, as well as posts about life beyond the Camino. Follow bethlindfoote.com
