Sunday, October 11/15
After a good sleep and breakfast, we all wandered over to the big cathedral. K&A paid to tour inside while Linda and I wandered around the walled part of Leon. We then met up with K&A and wandered some more, eating tapas and drinks at a couple places we happened upon. We went for supper with pilgrims K&A had met on the way – a couple from Australia, a woman from California coast and some Irish young people.
Linda & I left them exchanging stories and went to mass and the perigrino / pilgrim blessing at the Real Basilica San Isidore – that church we first saw on Saturday afternoon.
We plan to take a bus from Leon at 8:30am to Virgen Del Camino. Then will we walk to Villa Mazarife only 13.8 km. a easy first day.
May you be filled with gratitude and joy as you bus and walk. Happy Thanksgiving!!
Thanks, happy Thanksgiving to you we are thankful too. Good first day walking. 2 PM here and we just settled at Albergue San Antonio de Padua, Villar de Mazarife.
