A Most Unusual End to a Tough Day

2acd3171-3c83-4d13-924e-b1e0ee881068A most unusual day indeed!

After a grueling trekking day of steep, slippery ups and downs punctuated by more than 1,370 stairs, we found our accommodation in Clovelly after a walk down a cobblestone way too steep for vehicles.

How do they get supplies to the pub where we are about to have dinner? They slide them on sledges. And the bottles of Southern Comfort I am sipping? Same way.

Now, the question of the day: How will we make it back up in the morning with our backpacks?

South West Coast Path: So Many Stairs

Sue climbs a flight of the 30,000 stairs on England’s South West Coast Path. No, I did not add a zero. But I am adding as we walk. So far, 2,159 stairs in five days, 64 miles, and 13,200 feet of ascent.

But this is not a story best told by the numbers.

Walk Scotland’s Highlands With Us

The year after we walked the Camino de Santiago, we journeyed to our former home, Scotland, to walk the West Highland Way. It was magnificent! Sue has a slide show for you.

Camino documentary goes to PBS

Reg and Lydia Smith at her Portland film celebration.

Director/producer Lydia B. Smith invited us to Portland last week to help celebrate her documentary’s nationwide PBS broadcasts.

Lydia, joined by volunteers and a small core staff, worked more than nine years to film, edit and promote “Walking the Camino: Six Ways to Santiago.” The film follows an international cast of pilgrims aged 21 to 62 on their journey across northern Spain. We first saw the film in 2014, soon after its release, and have streamed it many times since. It continues to inspire us to keep on trekking.

You can see the full-length documentary (it was shortened for the PBS showings) at caminodocumentary.org.

Congratulations to Lydia and to all who worked on the wonderful documentary!

Looking back at a section of the Umbrian Mountains that The Way of St. Francis led us through the previous day.
