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.
