June 29
Our Lady of Grace Monastery – St Jude Catholic Church

  • Distance: 17 miles

  • Elevation: Ascent 252 ft; Descent 373 ft

  • Schedule: 6:30 Breakfast/Pack; 8:00 Mass; 8:30 Depart; 5:00 Arrival; 6:00 Dinner; 8:00 Adoration/Rest

  • Description: Today is the second longest segment of the Camino, but it is a beautiful journey almost entirely on the beach.  We will take shuttles from the monastery back to Sunset Beach and then walk seven miles to Moss Landing where we will stop for lunch.  The second half of the day we will continue on the beach for another seven miles up to Marina State Beach and then head inland another two miles to St Jude Catholic Church.  Today’s route is safe for families and there are plenty of places for rest stops and water.  If it’s sunny it should be nice and warm, but the marine layer at the ocean can also make it overcast and chillier.    

  • Accommodations: St Jude Catholic Church: 303 Hillcrest Ave, Marina.  We will sleep on the parish hall floor. Church bathrooms and showers will be available.
