Saint James the Pilgrim
The boys wrote that they were about 1 hour and 15 min. (walking) from somewhere in/near Burgos … I wonder if they are near the small town of Villalba (which actually has yet another bridge … I had no idea there were so many bridges in Spain!). What I really want to know about this area, though, is whether or not they have seen any stork nests. I guess there are plenty stork nests in Spain and the church in Villalba almost always has one on its “espadaña” (some sort of church exterior decoration).
I missed a phone call from the boys today. It was disappointing, but I enjoyed listening to their fun message! (Thanks again, Mary!) I was glad to hear they were relaxing and enjoying a soccer game ... and VERY grateful that they were finally taking a day off.
I also had no idea how chilly it would be! Noah is NEVER cold! I can’t believe that he needs windpants and a jacket ... in Spain ... in the summer! I’m always waiting for the school to call me complaining that he is too fair-weathered-dressed!
p.s. The Santiago Peregrino photo is from Our Lady of the Atonement Church in San Antonio.
p.p.s. Boys, if you meet up with Aiden again, tell him I said, Hello!"
