Evidently, Roman legionnaires would choose to live there at the end of their army careers in order to be closer to the spirit world at the point of their death. What is the connection of Finesterre with the Camino de Santiago? In other words, why have I travelled an extra fifty or so miles to come here? Well, because I wanted to see what the fuss was about with regard to Finesterre and I also wanted to see the sun set over the Atlantic….
I managed to myself a single room in the Albergue last night, basically so I could get myself a decent night sleep. I left just before 7.

It was very noticeable that my legs Cover Girl - Trans-X - On My Own strong as I walked during the first hour or so. I knew it was only a matter of time before the rain would start falling and I was hoping to keep dry Reza - Luiz Carlos Vinhas - Novas Estruturas at least 10am.

The only thing remained for me to do was to take off my boots and wet socks and put my sandals on as I walked the mile or two of wonderful sand to the town of Finesterre itself. It felt so good to walk in the water and on the sand. Interestingly enough, I noticed an awful lot of scallop shells on the beach….
