Old Boots/New Boots

Old boot with 500 miles on it with identical new boot.
Five weeks of walking through rain, snow, rocks, dust, and lots of mud, took a toll on the boots that were new when I started the walk.  I wonder what the new pair will look like after the next 500 miles?

August: Planning my return to Spain

In one month I'll be back in Spain, so I'm starting to prepare for the second half of my camino.  I ordered new rain pants, since my old ones were worn out, and an incredibly lightweight Mont-Bell down thermal sheet sleeping bag that just arrived today -- 13.8 oz.  Sadly, my pilgrim credential has gone missing, with all those wonderful stamps and the record of my journey so far.  I've ordered a new credential, but I still hope the old one will show up.  My friend Elsa Ross, a pilgrim herself,  held a tea in celebration of the completion of the first part of my camino on Sunday, July 25 -- St. James' Day!  I showed my first iMovie!

Pictures of the tea may be seen here:
