We have seen these way markers through the whole trip- different types, but all listing the kilometers left to travel. Here is the significance of this particular marker
Did you get that? Zero more Kilometers to go. This is not just the end of the road, this is the end of the earth, as they knew it. This journey predates even the Santiago Camino as people came to Finesterre (the end of the earth) as it was as West as one could get, before falling of the earth.
And here is the great thing. There is a hotel and a a bar and a restaurant at the end of the world (I am hoping to smoke out all Science fiction geeks on this one). The Hotel was closed on Mondays, but we got to eat lunch at the bar at the end of the world- Lucky us.
So for us…
1,000,000 Steps Later- we have reached the end, as far West as we can go. As we were celebrating and taking our picture at the Zero Mile marker we asked a nice man to take a picture for us. He asked were we ending or beginning. We told him that we were ending. He walked down the road, and then turned around- No he said, now you are beginning… and that is the profound truth. This Camino has ended, but the next one begins today. Amen… but as this Camino has ended, this blog is also ending.
We feel truly blessed and truly thankful to our church, the Lilly Foundation, Follow the Camino, and the Creator of all we have enjoyed.
We had a hard time picking photos from this joyful day, so hear are our favorite 20.
