From a Post on Facebook late on 1st Oct
WELCOME BACK CAM
"To all who wondered why my #BlackDogCampaign #Camino posts stopped - the friend I went with and I ended up parting ways and he had the phone, so I have been incommunicado throughout. I will try to do something retrospectively - as I arrived in Santiago on Wednesday at 11.15 am a day and a half early an got back to Coventry Saturday afternoon (1 October). Still can't believe I did it!"
Ian, another member of our congregation is also on the 'Camino' but had to rest up for some days to recover from blisters, but is now back walking again. Last information is that he was near Saria, with 100 kilometres to go.
