MEDIA ADVISORY: Preparing for and Hiking the Camino de Santiago


Preparing for and Hiking the Camino de Santiago

(HILTON HEAD, SC) Outside Hilton Head will host a discussion on ‘Preparing for and Hiking the Camino de Santiago,’ Thursday, March 8th at 5:45 pm. Marjorie Young will share her experience on preparing, packing, training and hiking the ancient 500-mile trek through northern Spain.

The trail starts in the Pyrenees in France and follows the mountain range into northern Spain and ends up in the ancient city of Santiago de Compostela, the alleged burial site of the Biblical apostle St. James. Many follow its route as a form of spiritual path or retreat for their spiritual growth. It is also popular with hiking and cycling enthusiasts and organized tour groups.

In 2016 at the age of 55, Marjorie Young of Savannah decided to hike the Camino de Santiago, in order to celebrate her 56th birthday on the Camino. The Camino de Santiago is listed as a World Heritage Trail, which was selected by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as having significance to the collective interests of humanity.

RSVP to Olivia Baddley at olivia@outsidebrands.com. Location is 50 Shelter Cove Lane in Hilton Head Island, SC next to Whole Foods. The event is free.

Artist Carol Stuart Watson was a ninth generation Marylander with a special love of the National Capital Area. Her illustrations appeared in Washington DC publications, products, and films and profoundly influenced the cultural visual art signature of the National Capital Region.

Young will discuss various works Watson created during her life long love affair with Georgetown and it’s colonial neighbors. Watson was the co-founder of Georgetown’s community paper THE GEORGETOWNER and the co-founder of Carriage Trade Publishing which established “Shopping in Washington and Dining in Washington,” annual reviews and advertising guidebooks.

Watson’s illustrated historical scenes of Washington, DC, Georgetown, Alexandria, Annapolis, Montgomery County, and Frederick were printed and widely circulated on postcards, calendars, in books, and as well as prints for framing. She was also a muralist; two of her major works include the large scene of ‘Colonial Georgetown’ at Lockheed Martin Headquarters in Bethesda, and another at the United States Chamber of Commerce which depicts the “Romance of Lafayette Square.”

Included in this presentation will be examples of the many illustrations, painting, and photographs she created.
