                                             Dear Blogger Friends..

That is .. if I still have some Blogger Friends.  I have been absent for so long, I doubt you will be still here.  I have been in a foreign land called Facebook.  How ridiculous is that!

2013 was a year with a difference.  The year I walked The Camino.
I promised to share with you how it was to walk 500 miles of pilgrimage.
Will you be surprised I wrote hardly anything while walking.
I believe it has taken me ever since to absorb and think about what the walk has meant to me.

I have decided to share with you my strange little journal
written immediately after the walk.

I was staying in St Albans, a beautiful pilgrim place in England, and every day I would pop into the
Medieval Abbey with my little journal, to think and write.
I wrote only on the right hand page.  I added photos later when I returned home.

You may have a problem making sense of it.
Whatever...  here it is.   The first part of a Journal of a Pilgrimage..

The wanderer returns!


Surprise!
Surprise!
I've found how to access my old blog!
Playing around like children do, is the way to learn on a computer.
I surprised myself.

Now I will be able to tell you about my walking The Camino.
I can't just now..
because I have a cup of tea date with my
neighbour Pete The Jazman.. 

see you soon!

Weather...



Our February
came and went,
and every single day was sunny and hot.
I rose in the dark most mornings,

and watched the sun rise as I walked.

Cirrus clouds usually mean rain in three days,
but not this February.

The heat of the sun slowly changed the green of our land

to brown

and gold.

My new neighbours are from England
and they cannot believe every day since their arrival has been sunny and calm.

Farmers are worried, and feed supplements to their animals,
 and gardeners are busy watering their gardens.  
They call this weather a drought,
and watch the sky for rain.
Despite all this it has been the best season for roses, cucumbers
fat juicy tomatoes.

Everyone else calls it a perfect summer
and heads for the beaches....

and me.. I keep on walking counting down the days
to my really big walk.
I check the world's weather and  cannot believe
there is snow falling
in Spain.
