Hey what gives there are only 40 days of Lent why are we up to Day #41? When we talk about the 40 days of Lent - we do not include Sundays which are not included in that period or any special days. Lent is a penitential period within which - in fact - has 46 days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday. Also partly due to confusion between the period of the Lenten fast and the liturgical 'season' or period of Lent - Since Sunday is excluded in the week - only 6 of those week days are counted as Lenten days. so to that end - there will be a total of 48 posts to this Lenten series. Confused - good - walking in a fog sometimes actually helps you see clearer once that fog is lifted. If you are feeling like you are walking in a fog on your Lenten journey - join the club - you are not alone - it is a part of your experience that is special for you. Leave it up to Jesus to sort this out for you.

El Camino - The Way #41
Walking in fog - sometimes you just have to
Once the fog disappears things become clearer -
like this plant whatever it is
Road construction on the Camino - in our personal lives - everywhere
Biking the Camino - not as easy as it looks
Lots of pilgrims ahead of us - lunch time
Only 30 Km left
Medieval drainage system
Last small town before Santiago
25 Km left
Did it make a noise when it fell?
Does God make a noise when he calls you?
Stone stacking getting serious - 21 Km
Remnant of old Medieval church
20 Km enough walking for today
Typical wash line at the albergues - everyone does wash daily
Our second public/city owned albergue
We were very close to Santiago at this point - the 100Km walkers are very numerous now - today was very fruitful - we walked about 23 kilometers - some uphill challenges but most was fairly flat. Clothes washed and hanging out to dry - changed into our dry clothes - looking for some afternoon refreshment - waiting for dinner - then time for reflection - more prayers - bedtime. Lights out at 22:00
