Estamos aqui. We are here.
Today we walked our final 22 kms in to Santiago de Compostela in brilliant sunshine, arriving in front of the Cathedral just a few minutes after the bells tolled 2 o'clock.
As promised Martin was there to meet us. It was a wonderful welcome, as you will see from the photos. Hugs and kisses all around, followed by a celebratory drink in the sun, then straight to the pilgrims' office to present our credenciales and receive our Compostelas.
And this all before we checked into our lovely hotel, just around the corner from the Cathedral. My room even has a view of same. Thank you for the recommendation Phil, it's perfect.
Already we have seen some of the friends we met along The Way and we are sure to see more tomorrow when we attend the pilgrims' mass at 12 noon. But more on that tomorrow. It's been a big day so enough words tonight. We will leave you with images from today, until our final post mañana.
With thanks to Julie, Pam, Kev and Elaine, Audrey, Rosanne, Cathy, Sharon, Jennifer and Phil, Judy, Jane and David for your kind emails and comments. And, of course, Martin.
