I want to post one more thing. Following the signs for the Way can be difficult sometimes. I walked alone again today which was so peaceful and enjoyable. One of the great things and not so great things about me is I tend to go along in life living in the moment and not thinking much ahead. This is not a good characteristic to have when walking the Camino. At one point, I was merrily walking along a lake only to discover I had gone the wrong way. I went left at the lake and all the other peregrinos went right. I turned around and quickly got back in rank with the crowd. This put me on guard! So, I was very careful to watch for arrows. Well, that is until I got into this one beautiful vineyard. Suddenly, I realized I hadn’t seen any arrows for awhile. So, I turned around and retraced my path. This scenario happened about 5-6 times today! Every time though, I was on the right path and would quickly run into other pilgrims.
***A note to parents: This post is not to cause worry! I promise I am never in danger. There are always people a bit ahead and a bit behind. So please! There is no need for worry! 😄
