Small detail. No entrance by foot to Saint Joseph’s Oratory because of a massive construction project. Having walked every step of the way, was I willing to ride the shuttle bus to the church? No.
Change of mind set. If I was comfortable riding ferries along the Camino, than this unexpected twist should not diminish from my accomplishment. Mask up and take a seat on the shuttle and ride to the top.
Family and friends gave us a royal welcome. A perfect acknowledgment to our Camino.
PS…Elise was part of our celebration in spirit. Unfortunately, she was unable to finish the Camino with us.
