We have arrived at Choisel camp

8pm French time, after the final, killing, climb, we got into the camp: the conclusion of the first day's walking, which started after Mass at 9am.

The washing facilities are, I think, unique. But hey, no one's asking me to climb any more hills, so I'm happy. I'll go and get my bowl of soup and bread roll to celebrate!

  1. My wife is there - please give her my cheers if you happen to see her (they're three ladies with a Russian flag). - Oleg-Michael.

  2. Well done Joe, and all your fellow pilgrims, for completing the first day. I imagine getting going again this morning will be a challenge, with stiff limbs and blisters developing nicely. Justin and I are with you all in our thoughts and prayers. Happy and holy Pentecost to you all!

  3. Can we have a photo of the washing facilities?

    My son is there, with the American contingent from the Remnant (I'm in Pennsylvania). He us texted today," I officially have as many blisters as there are apostles."
