Correction about the tree that I called a Monkey Puzzle: It is a Pino de Norfolk also called a Norfolk Island Pine.
Last night we were able lo leave the door to the deck in our room open. That allowed us to hear the waves all night. In the beginning I could see stars until it clouded over. In the morning we woke up to the view of dark clouds over white clouds over the sea.
We left our packs at our Albergue and walked about 3.5 km to the lighthouse at the end of Finisterre. By the way, The Romans gave this town the name of ‘Finis Terrae’, meaning Land’s End or The End of the World, as they believed this point to be the most Western corner of their vast Empire.
I like the sculpture we saw on the way because I think it depicts a pilgrim walking in the wind.
Near the lighthouse is where it is a tradition to burn your clothes. They prefer our not doing that because of the pollution so I didn’t burn a used pair of my toe socks. They are the only thing from my pack that I would be willing to leave behind.
One more boot left behind.
The Camino symbol that says 0 km. left:
But we about 30 km. left to get to Muxia.
We picked up our packs and met up with Mary and Maureen and had a great lunch. We were given a spacious room when we checked into the Albergue where Mary and Maureen were staying. The owners here are very sweet and helpful.
We walked around town and had ice-cream cones and then dinner in that order, of course.
Crossing our fingers for good weather tomorrow because we should be able to see the Atlantic along parts of our 13.5km. walk tomorrow.

I hope your ice creme cone was a double or triple in celebration of completing the Camino de Santiago! Congratulations to you and everyone with whom you’ve walked that long path.
