This morning, well fed and rested, we left in the rain just after eight. Google maps took us through the most spectacular route we have walked up till now. For 27 km's we walked through forests, pine plantations and farms, apple orchards, vineyards and prickly pears. We sampled some of the prickly pears - sweat!
The last 6 km's was a test. Dunes upon dunes. We were exhausted when we eventually reached Nazaré.
We again reflected on the Camino; the fun we had! We talked about faith, God's faith in us. The Bible, breath of God, definitely not a rule book. God's grace and charity towards people. The depth of the Catholic faith, part of our roots. The Mystery that cannot be explained.
It is a pity that we do not treasure the myths and legends of our faith. Faith needs reason, but faith without mystery is dead.
Thank you for traveling with us. God was a faithful Companion, as always. Now we are tourists.
