nearing the Abbey

Still in Winchester today, since the Abbey can't accomodate us until tomorrow afternoon. Last night we stayed at a church I'd visited before, and slept under their picnic shelter. A neighbor noticed us so I went over and explained that we were on a long walk, a kind of pilgrimage, and that I'd been here before. "Paul," she said, surprising me. "I remember, they called you pilgrim Paul."

Tomorrow we'll reach Holy Cross Abbey, a favorite spot of mine, for a few days of rest and prayer (so I might not make any entries for a while).
