Arrival to the sea!

Clicking on this link will bring you good karma:

The walk from Olveiroa this morning was very pleasant:






Just after the village of Hospital you have the option of continuing onto either Finisterre/Fisterra, or Muxia:


The way then begins to become more sandy and suddenly you see the sea:





The first town you arrive to on the sea is named Cee and I am currently here in the town having a chat with a friend I met last year – Guzman – who runs a great albergue in the town. The albergue is named Albergue A Casa Da Fonte. Even if you don’t want to sleep here you will be welcomed in for a complimentary cup of tea or coffee, and you can also use their computers or wifi free of charge. It’s a great pit stop on the way to Finisterre and it’s located right on the Camino path so you can’t miss it: 36 Rua de Arriba.

Last year I passed through this albergue and mentioned that I had had everything stolen and Guzman had a check in the lost property; giving me a sleeping bag and clothes for my journey back home. To me he was an angel and I imagine also an angel to many other pilgrims.

This evening I will play in the main square in Cee and try and earn some money.
Later Guzman and I promised to meet up for a beer.

Feeling a little numb with wonder at finally having made it to the sea, and with only approx 15km to go until I reach Finisterre. The weather is sunny. Everything is positive and optimistic. Mission almost complete.

  1. Congratulations on seeing the sea, enjoy it!! It must have been absolutely mind boggling for earlier pilgrims who got that far and had never ever seen it (not your case I reckon …)

    • Yes, I was also discussing this with another pilgrim; in days past many pilgrims will have arrived to the coast to see the sea for the first (and in some cases only) time in their lives. Wishing you a wonderful day! Nev 🙂
