More Guemes Connections

A note (dated July 8) from a friend of Bill and Ann Testerman who is walking the Camino ....

 

"I spent the last couple days in Guemes (Spain) at the albuergue with Father Ernesto. It was such a SMALL WORLD feeling. He was 'over the top excited' that we were another set of emissaries from the burgeoning friendship between worldwide Guemeses. In fact, he brought out all the photo collages he had made of his trip to Guemes Island - including one that had Bill and Ann's photo in it.  And, in fact, on his parish church, there was still the banner up from the potluck on Guemes Island. His albuergue is stunning and one of the best on the northern route (that we've seen)."

 

Such a wonderful bond has been forged by our island's warm welcome and enthusiastic embrace of Father Ernesto and his mission to connect the Guemeses of the world!
