The sky was hazy and the day was forecast to be hot, but we got out and got walking anyway.
Did the Hike and Bike for about 6 miles, working-in new insoles for both of us. There were 15 cottontail bunnies to see, plus two roadrunners. One of them sat in a tree and called at us.
I've been working on some little things to hang from our packs on the pilgrimage this time. We're going to be walking to Fatima, as well as to Santiago de Compostela, and I thought it would be an idea to have some sort of token that we're pilgrims to both places.

These tags are about 2/3 the size of our scallop shells from last year. I think we may use the same shells again this year, since we didn't "souvenir-ize" them by writing details of our first pilgrimage inside or anything like that. They're still plain and simple, the natural creamy color of the shell.
