What a treat it was to be able end our Camino by getting a chance to walk again! It was a lovely trail through a eucalyptus forest then farmland.

It was good to see the familiar way marks again.
We went through the small hamlet of San Anton, really only a couple of houses each with several out buildings. One had used an old building to grow grapes in. And a pilgrim had left a message for his girlfriend on the wall of an abandoned building.
Then the trail opened to grazing and cropland.
More lovely trail.
We met two couples from Ireland that Miriam & Ronan had met the previous day. They were taking turns pushing a daughter who had cerebral palsey.
And finally a field of yellow flowers before we walked into Armenal to find a taxi for the rest of the way to Santiago. This gives you some idea of what we’ve been missing when we haven’t been able to walk and why we’ve issued it so much and why it meant so much to be able to do this last little bit.
