... red wine, and really great food that the owner brought for us. And the rest is history. I woke up at the usual time, and it was pouring with rain! At 08h30 we settled into a breakfast of kings. Nespresso and all. I set off at 10h00 on the dot, Ina and Mauritz were to meet me in Santiago. The day started with a rainbow on the horizon - and that was about the last piece of beauty.

When we last posted, the family had just been reunited. On the heals of completing the Camino with Bobby and Natalie, Angelica joined us for some significant family time. Sat. Aug 16 was Paul's mom, Bobbie's birthday. She would have been 81. Sun. Aug. 17 was my big 5-0 And Tues. Aug. 19 was my mom's first birthday in heaven.
