“Man Plans, and God Laughs.”Old Yiddish adage
Despite all the hiking and backpacking we do it has been many years since we’ve had problems with blisters. But rain and shoe failure have caused blisters that will sideline us for at least a few days.
We’ve opted to take a train from Deba to Bilbao, a major city, where we should be able to find replacement shoes for Laurie and give her some time to heal before returning to Deba via train to resume our pilgrimage. If you pray, we wouldn’t mind a few.
Before departing this morning a local citizen opened the church for us and a French peligrino for a private tour. Pretty amazing.
And no, I did not plan this so we could watch Top Gun Maverick in Bilbao—although I see several theaters showing it.
We will pick up the blog when we resume our journey. Relive today will look a tad unusual.
Lot of miles covered in Relive today…most of it on the train. You will notice a lot of zig-zagging as we searched for just the right shoes.
