Last night I walked 3 kms up to the lighthouse to watch the sunset. For some reason I had the idea the 00.0 mark of the Camino would be a very special, quiet moment for pilgrims.
As I got closer and closer to the lighthouse the atmosphere seemed to turn to that of a major tourist attraction. There were cars parked this way and that and it seemed as though hundreds of people were milling around.
I found a place to sit on a stone wall near the lighthouse to watch the sunset. It was pretty but I have to say quite anti-climatic.
But today has been marvelous. I walked to the beach, gathered some shells, romped in the sea and lay in the sand. One of the nicest things I experienced today was a young peregrino running along the beach happy because he had arrived at the end of his Camino.
After the beach, I lunched at a seaside cafe on grilled fish and a wonderful Albarino wine. Jonathan Livingston Seagull was my luncheon companion today 🙂
