Number of times I paused = Infinite
Today was the coup de grâce of the Camino; a 22 mile “walk” from Barcelos to Ponte de Lima. I know I drive more than that in a day, but keep in mind I’m carrying everything I need...clothes, toiletries, a bag of cherries 🍒 😂. And did those cherries weigh a ton toward the end!! There were so many times I wanted to throw in the towel. But since I dedicated the hike to someone (you know who you are 😉), I kept pushing forward.
I won’t go into much details in this post as the pictures will speak for themselves and I need rest. But today truly revealed the majesty of the Portuguese countryside and the historicity of this trail.
