Last year, at this time, I posted about a friend who walked the last part of the Camino de Santiago (125 miles) from Leon to Santiago Spain.
It was quite an amazing fete because you see, not too many years ago, Ernie who is a doctor in West Texas, was badly injured in a biking accident. Seems a little lady, who was past the age of someone who should be driving, hit Ernie from behind while he was biking early one morning.. She said she had a hard time seeing, so she always drove on the shoulder of the road.
Amazingly Ernie did survive and I was delighted to post his daily journal of his walk on this blog, although I never did inquire about the significance of that seashell.
On Top o Pike's PeakWell Ernie has just announced that he will walk the Camino again this year (in June) for his 72nd birthday. This time with his 15 year old grandson Eirik. I can't imagine a more wonderful memory for Eirik to have. I by the way have requested to again be on the email list. Stay tuned.
