Today we finished the next to the last leg of our pilgrimage. It was a good day of talking and reminiscing about the journey. We have about 20km more to get to our destination. Tonight, as we were discussing our plans for tomorrow, it was both exciting and sad. It is a really strange feeling that most of us are experiencing. As we were talking, it was really hard to keep from crying. I'm in strange place right now and having a hard time wrapping my mind around it.
I saw my friend Eve tonight. He had tears in his eyes, too, as he described the feeling. He is in the same place emotionally, and has said that it is now in his blood and he will return to walk it again. With his wife. Maybe they will join us next year when Laurie walks it with me. We plan on meeting up tomorrow to say goodbye.
We (the Aggies) leave at six tomorrow morning and plan on walking the last leg together.
