We were up and on the road before dawn this morning and as the cocks crew and the sun came over the horizon we were already well into our 16km walk to the ‘other end of the world’.
Finisterre has the name but Muxia is actually further west. The area has great spiritual significance, legend and lore for many. It was here that St. James’s (Santiago) body was reputed to have been first brought ashore and buried until it was later discovered and brought to Santiago de Compostela.
The sea was relatively calm and I sat on the rocks jutting out into the vast ocean and considered the last seven days. Although it was a short week, it has been a memorable one and as I have found so often in the past, hard to let go of. But let go I must. I return home this evening, taking great memories of another Camino experience. Thank you for coming on this journey with me and for all the lovely messages of encouragement and support. I’ve loved having you with me in spirit.
