A happy new year to all, and here is our thread for this next year.
Hoping that we can continue to meet up here in South Devon and chat about the Camino
Buen Caminos peregrinos

I am in Cornwall and would love some contact with other pilgrims in South West...
It would be great if you can get to meet up with us, we usually go to Darts Farm near Exeter. Accessible by bus or car and also train nearby
If you 'watch' this thread and 'with email' ticked then you should see when we plan to meet next. Probably early March or maybe late February.
Usually we suggest a few dates and then eliminate those that are no good, or go for the one that is most popular.

Thank you so much for your speedy reply. Hoping to walk Vdlp this year, so would welcome the chance to compare notes etc etc.

I was hoping to find another pilgrim who is walking the VdlP in 2020.
It might be easier to find that on the VdlP thread, but one of the 'Camigos' might just be walking.

Not sure exactly where you live @JennyH94 but hope the awful fires are not affecting you.
Any plans yet for 2020 and the UK??

Thanks for your concern regarding the bushfires, Tia Valeria. Steve and I have a second home at Culburra Beach in the Shoalhaven on the NSW South Coast. We’ve had bushfires near us but we’re safe. It’s been devastating for all who’ve been affected - so many fires, so widespread in many areas of Australia - and it’s a worrying time for everyone who live near bushland areas.
Plans for 2020 are still not set - I’m waiting on news from the Pilgrim Office as to whether or not my application has been accepted. I hope to hear late January/early February. I’ll be in touch once I hear from them.
In the meantime, a Happy and Hopeful New Year to you, ‘Tio Tel’ and all the Camigos in South Devon.
Cheers from Oz -
Jenny

I lived just outside Camborne. My parents still live in Cornwall. I've walked a fair bit of the SWCP down there..... you are really lucky.....I miss Cornwall a lot.

Have you plans for a camino this year?
Yes. I'm walking the Camino Frances this Spring. I've just started training..... the dreaded backpack starts coming with me on Monday lol. You're spoilt for choice with training routes aren't you? The Moors are really boggy at the moment, and our coastline up here isn't a patch on the Cornish coastline.

Hi Kim, we cycled the VdlP a few years ago - so pm me if you have any queries. We did cycle most of the walker's route...!
There is also another group who are doing walks - usually with a pub visit! in Devon/Cornwall - all Camino folk, so pm if you are interested in that.
Hopefully, we will be having a meet up at Dart's Farm or the Cathedral this spring (any dates Tia?!) so if you come to that you will get plenty of advice/feedback etc!!

Haven't been there but we cycled from Sintra, following the inland route from Porto. I know many of the Camigos are experienced walkers of all the Portuguese routes.... so good for info!

Thinking about a Tuesday in March.
We cannot be sure about a Saturday at present due to family visits, but maybe some one else can organise something for a Saturday and we will sort the Tuesday.
Any suggestions for which Tuesday at Darts Farm?
☺

Can we suggest Tuesday 3rd. Early enough that folk might not have started walking and leaves the rest of March free if some-one does want to organise a Saturday somewhere as well.

May I attend? ? Time and venue?
Be great to see you there.

For Kim and others new to our 'get-togethers':-
Darts Farm is near Topsham, just east of Exeter. Good parking, also not too far from train (Exeter - Exmouth line) and a bus stop almost outside. You can find it on google maps.
We usually meet any time from 11.00 onwards until after lunch - about 2.00pm. There is a delicatessen and also a fish and chip bar. [Note - not the main restaurant]
I will post a diagram here before the 3rd March, but it is on the threads for previous years if you want to look.
One of our Exeter Camigos might be able to post the bus number and times :)

Just a reminder about our get-together on Tuesday 3rd.
For those who have not been before here is the plan of the farm shop/cafe area.
First there usually try for the big round table if it is free so if you are first please do that if you can.
And hopefully we will not be rained off this time.......

Good to see you all and chat on tuesday.
Am copying in an email from Wendy in case anyone wants to attend - (beautiful Holy Well at St Neots too!!)
Dear CSJ Friends,

I am delighted to let you know that we are having a Practical Pilgrim Day at The Village Hall, St Neot, Cornwall on Saturday March 14th, 10.so - 3.30. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone thinking about a Camino pilgrimage to come along and meet like-minded people, and to share the experiences and knowledge of fellow Camino enthusiasts. To tempt you further, there will be a pasty lunch!

You are all most welcome to attend. Please would you help to spread the word amongst any other walking groups, those at your church, and so on? We would be most grateful. I have attached a poster just in case you are able to print it off and distribute it locally. The event is being organised by Tony Ward, the CSJ Treasurer, and his phone number is on the poster.

As usual, Charles and I have a few spare places in our car if anyone would like to share a lift from Plymouth.

With warm regards to all,

Wendy
wendyemartin@hotmail.co.uk


Wendy has a program of pilgrimage-related walks/events in the Sw too- including Princetown on the 21st march.

Good to see you there @hecate105 , and @CarolamS .

We might look at trying to meet up before August but no promises at the present time.
All being well we will try to meet in November and then feel that it is time for some one else to organise meetings. Any takers???
:):)

If someone is happy to do it for the next couple of years (while I'm off cycling!) I'd be happy to do it after that....! jo

Sounds good :) We will keep going quite happily for the rest of this year. It is 2021 that we feel might need a change until @hecate105 gets back. Anyone??

Well..... we hung on as long as we could but yesterday finally cancelled our booking for May. Partial refund on its way. Very sad as this was to have been our final time.
However we are enjoying the current lovely weather in a beautiful part of the world.
One day we will meet again, until then God bless you all.

Sorry you had to miss out on your final trip @Tia Valeria and thank you for all the organising of Camigos in S Devon. I really appreciated meeting you and Terry before my Camino and hearing your advice and enthusiasm. I won't be walking the Primitivo this year either. But one day I will get there and will send you my good thoughts and wishes when I do.
I can try and 'temp' for @hecate105 next year if you like. At least I can put out feelers to see if anyone would like to meet up.

Hi Tia Valeria, so sorry to hear that your final trip had to be cancelled ☹. I hope that you and Terry are both well and enjoying the sunshine? I haven't really been too active in the forum in recent months but will keep an eye on the thread for future meetup dates later this year, assuming social distancing relaxes over time.

Thank you for your Camigos organisation across the last few years and Buen Camino/Buen Camigo in your pursuits outside of the Camino. x

Good to hear from you @miguel_gp . One day hopefully we will all meet up again and it would be great if you could join us. Meanwhile we are enjoying the sunshine and continue to walk around our local back lanes for our daily exercise. Only very short today between rain.
Haven't been in a shop for 6 weeks but have good deliveries from local greengrocer and from organic on-line shop and friend and neighbours are filling the gaps. We are used to home baking - I make bread bread, and we both make cakes etc. Terry is just starting a croissant mix ready for tomorrow and we will share them with said friend and neighbours. (Delivery to doorstep :)) Then I have the ingredients for Tarta de Santiago. Just to keep the Camino in mind.

How are other Camigos doing? and maybe also what are you doing while staying home?

So sorry to hear of cancelled trips. I too was hoping to be on the norte again this Easter. But it's been nice to explore the east Devon hills in the sunshine instead. Perhaps next year......
Please keep me informed of future meetings, and happy baking.

Well I'm basically working full-time from home. Office set up in the back of the sitting room and I'm as busy, if not more busy, as I was while working in the office. How does that work? :eek:
Unusually, I did not have a Camino already planned and booked for this year so I haven't had to cancel anything, although I was hoping to maybe go in the Autumn prior to the Covid measures. A couple of groups of my friends and a group my son had organised have all had to cancel/postpone their plans for Spring/Early Summer Caminos. I'm gutted for them but obviously there is no other course of action.
Take Care Camigos.

Such a shame - but like you say - we do live in the loveliest of places.... We have been exploring the lanes locally too - it is amazing how many footpaths/tracks we have never walked or walked 20 years ago...!
We have been building a porch - incorporating some stained glass and glass bricks (mostly from freecycle!) - yesterday i was able to put my ducks in a row (literally at least!) on the shelf and then put my statue of St James next to them....and might rustle up a tortilla later!!

Croissants cooked and ready to eat :). Shared, straight out of the oven and 'untouched by human hand' with neighbours who have been helping with shopping and friends opposite.
Looking forward to ours and putting the rest in the freezer for later.....
