For me, beginning the Camino from a kitchen seems befitting. Close to the Rua Augusta Arch is Sé Cathedral, considered the official Camino start for Lisbon. After asking the cathedral usher three times where was the Camino’s way-marker, he escorted me. Figure-background…do you see purple graffiti or the Camino way-marker?

I’m so excited to see you “out and about” again. You look as healthy and fit as ever.
Are you part of a group again? Solo?
All our very best to you now and always,

Happy memories from our Coast to Coast days and our later trip to Yosemite National Park. Treasured memories.

It’s amazing the connection walking offers. Yes, good memories of my first long distance walk where we met. Solo traveling but will meet a friend from a previous Camino as are independent plans overlap. Best to you and Mary. ~linda
Congratulations on the start of your Camino adventure. Thanks for the wonderful photos and for sharing them with us. Bien Camino.
Good to hear from you, and even better to know you have recovered enough to begin your adventure! 👍
Shared bits of Wednesday’s walk with a BC/Kingston, Canadian. He grinned when I told him you daily get the Kingston Gazette electronically. ~linda
He probably smiled because the name of the newspaper John sends me is the Kingston Whig-Standard, not the Gazette! 🤪🤪🤪
Delighted you got to meet another Canadian! 🇨🇦
Good to see you are on your way. Stay well!
Very much enjoying the simplicity of walking.~linda
Great to see you on a new adventure, having a little FOMO(fear of missing out) here in Virginia. Wonderful pictures.
I was wondering if you had read the blog as your replies always hit home base. You’ve put a smile on my face. Happy trails. ~linda
