Sheridans’ Spanish pilgrimage featured
On Jan. 29, Carol and Ed Sheridan of Bolton presented a slide show depicting their lengthy hike last summer over a famous trail through the northern Spanish countryside.
The travelogue, held in the Bolton Free Library, attracted a standing-room-only crowd.
The Sheridan’s hike last June was on the trail of “The Camino,” also known as The Way of St. James, an 800 kilometer pilgrimage. The Sheridans hiked 110 kilometers, ending in Santiago di Compostela. They and others on the pilgrimage were given “passports” that were stamped along the way at various hostels, inns, restaurants, pubs, and churches. At the end they were awarded certificates for their accomplishment.
At the recent travelogue presentation, the audience was provided Sangria by Carol Sheridan and tapas by the Lakeside Lodge. The slide show was followed by a question and answer session.
