Queen Elizabeth – Sept. 19, 2022

  • Portuguese Camino: Day 06/ Azinhaga to Asseiceira
  • Distance: 16.6 miles / Total 93.8 miles
  • Time: 7 hours 15 minutes
  • Ascent: 651’/ Decent: 430’
  • Weather: 81 degrees / overcast with one 30-minute light rain

Today is Queen Elizabeth’s funeral. The world grieves. When asked “When did you walk the Camino?” My reply will be, “The year Queen Elizabeth died.”

Who has not lived during Queen Elizabeth’s life?

One thought on “Queen Elizabeth – Sept. 19, 2022”

  1. Thank you, watched the service on my phone, very moved, it was beautifully done. Can’t quite believe (or understand ) why I feel so the loss so keenly. Think it’s something to do with the loss of an era that encapsulated my life and many things that were dear to me including hard won progress over the last 70 yrs. which our queen embraced and adapted to. It felt odd not being at home in London. Return tomorrow. Love, Joanna
