We’re nearing the end of the walk, which has mixed emotions. Today we leave the Camino del Norte and join the French Camino in Arzúa, our home for tonight. We walked about 22km today from Sobrado dos Monxes. Last night we didn’t have Mass for Sunday as it was at 11 am, but we witnessed the monks in Sobrado do Vespers in their chapel in the evening, which was a memorable experience.
We had a rain forecast for the morning as we left Sobrado. The forecast wasn’t wrong. As we headed out, the clouds were very threatening, and the wind was howling. It wasn’t looking good. Thankfully the rain seemed to hold back for a while, and we only got a soaking for about 30 minutes of our walk. Once it had rained, the blue sky appeared, and we had a pleasant walk into Arzúa.
So that is all there is today. The sad thing is that we met up with the French Way today in Arzúa, which means we’ve left the Camino del Norte and have two more days till we get to Santiago. Then it’s back to Barcelona and onto Sydney. I will be home by Saturday.
The French Way seems really busy, and we’ve already met quite a few pilgrims in Arzúa.

Buen Camino! 😜
