Manteca pilgrim goes the long way

Shalice Tilton in Pamplona, Spain. residents dress in ceremonial garb for the annual Running of the Bulls.

Manteca’s Shalice Tilton, 56, is another pilgrim who walked the Camino de Santiago, a medieval Christian pilgrimage trail. The trail leads to the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain where tradition holds the remains of St. James are buried.

Unlike the Stockton and Linden women I wrote about, Tilton went the long route, starting just across the border in France, traversing all Spain.

Five hundred miles.

A retired City Clerk for the City of Buena Park, “Her friends, co-workers, and family all paid for her trip as a gesture of appreciation after nearly 30 years of service to the City,” writes her husband, Jeff.

“She started the Camino de Santiago on June 1 in St. Jean Pied De Port, France, and finished the 500 miles on July 11 in Santiago, Spain. The picture was taken in Pamplona, Spain, just prior to the annual “Running of the Bulls.”
