Lights along the way

The Carers Walk for Wellbeing took place in May 2016 along the ancient Camino Portugues, 260 kilometres from Porto, Portugal to Finisterre in Spain. We passed many churches and cathedrals which provided shelter, and sometimes an opportunity to light a candle … make a wish, say a prayer.
