First my apologies if you subscribe to my blog and you are receiving emails that say there is a new post but when you follow the link, there’s nothing there. I’m still learning how to use this WordPress app on my phone.
Anyway, to continue from where I left off in my last post …
I walked a little over a kilometer toward the center of San Sebastián to the apartment where my friend Carina and her family were vacationing. It was great to see her and her husband after twenty-plus years, and to meet her sons and brother.
We chatted for awhile, then Carina suggested we go to the beach. Not having slept for more than 24 hours, I wasn’t inclined to do much of anything but Carina persisted. “It’s about 500 yards away,” she told me, “and well worth seeing.” I succumbed. Here is what I would have missed:
We lay on the beach for awoke, during which time I regretted the decision not to bring my swimsuit to the Camino. Finally, I decided it was time to go shower the travel grime away so took a set of keys and headed back to the apartment. On the way, I came across this:
Finally I made it back and showered and changed. The gang was back by then and talking about going to dinner. At first I said I would join them but about twenty minutes later I felt like I was about to pass out so crawled into bed, donned my eye mask and Bose noise reducing headphones playing white, and basically passed out, waking up a couple times but then going back to sleep until eight this morning.
