Santiago - Day 2

Dear Blog Readers

Santiago - day 2

Up early for breakfast - 7 a.m. to get the bus to Finnsterra by 9 a.m.
Roberta joins us and we set off to tour several small towns along the Alantic coast of Galicia.  Rain finally comes to Galicia and we get to use the rain ponchos we bought.
We visit several churches and local markets - with the rain still blessing us. We arrive in Finnsterra for lunch - a fishing town noted for being the most westerly point in Europe.  Have fish for lunch.
Later travel to the Cape Finnsterra for a final ritual of the pilgrims - a cross hanging over the Atlantic where most burn some item - I just take photos in the rain and thick mist.
We return by 5:30 p.m. and do a bit of souvenir shopping for the family.  Will try to shop for clothes one last time tomorrow and them maybe have a quite visit in a church, with the hope the crowds have all returned home.
Still have not as yet realized I´ve walked the Camino for 36 days and 780 kms.  It seems like someone else did that.
Blessings from Santiago,
