    Warm clothing needed in May on Frances Way

    Alberques and first time walker

    Thank you...I didn't realize that was there? I was planning a "future" walk, my mom fell fracturing a femur and I dropped back in full-time caregiving mode canceling plans for the Camino.

    Alberques and first time walker

    Progress! Thank you community for all your help! After feeling like I was drinking from a fire hose, things are falling into place with more clarity emerging. Most importantly...I'm reminded of my intention to flow with the Camino and make the most of all experiences. Perfect!
