These are great John! Nothing wrong with the technology!
 
very nice, John. Isn't the 'Hospital de Bruma' caption on the wrong photo? Any particular reason why you've not made these publicly available? And if they have geotags, we can plot them on those maps we were discussing :)

Yikes Peter - you're talking Geotags when I've just bought a digital camera, uploaded pics for the first time and after considerable experimentation just about managed to create a slide show!

Geotages and interactive downloadable guidebooks next - phew!

I've corrected the caption to read "A scene on the route from A Coruna to Hospital de Bruma" if that's the one to which you were referring. :)

Thanks for posting these photos John.

I'm now actually thinking of doing this route next year.

Anyone else got any photos to post?

I walked the Camino Ingles in early September, and here is a link to my pictures:
http://picasaweb.google.com/laurie.reyn ... oIngles08#

I just took another look at them, and there is one picture that I cannot figure out. It looks like a shot of everything a pilgrim might throw on the ground during a rest stop, but why I would take that picture is beyond me. And I can't figure out how to delete it. But the rest are more scenic, I think.

Red Kite, I liked this Camino very much. The first part up to Betanzos is very scenic, but all pavement. The second part on to Santiago is much more off road, but not as pretty, IMO. Lots of eucalyptus all the way. One thing I didn't see on the Ingles were a lot of cows, unlike most Caminos in Galicia, but Rebekah told me they're all off in big industrial CAFOs nearby.

Lovely PIctures, Laurie!

The one you captioned "See the Cathedral spires?" made me look twice! The little cafe at the bottom of those stairs - the umbrellas in your photo - is one of the best I found in Santiago! Virtually no pilgrims go there, it must be a well kept secret - it is all locals, and their tapas are to die for! They bring a plate with a variety of tapas with every copa, whether a limonada or an albariño! Unfortunately the name escapes me at the moment... so I guess the secret is safe with me! :oops:

Buen Camino,

Hi, Deidre,

I think the place you are referring to used to be an Irish or English Pub type place. I noticed it was gone the last time I was in Santiago and this was the replacement. I think that the street is Rodrigo de Padron. I figured that out because I can see down the street the sign for the Pension 25 de Julio, and that's the address they list. So at least people will now be able to find it! I'll be sure to try it next time. Laurie

I do know that the Pensión 25 de julio is just down the street (across from the guardia civil) because I stayed there in June when I went to Santiago (It's a nice place, though not cheap, but includes breakfast) to meet a friend who was arriving from the Camino del norte. That's when I found the cafe and when I arrived in Santiago from my Camino in August, I took my new Spanish friends there! I'm terrible about writing down the names of places... I remember where there are and can usually find them again, but can't tell anyone else! :roll:
Buen Camino,

RIP 2015
yes it was a wet camino but the highs were better for it, the hot drinks the warm welcomes,the clink of glasses as we congratulated ourselves at the end of the day,it was our camino and we loved it and I'm sure the doctors can sort rosie out (she's depressed she put on 3lbs) I lost 4lbs somewhere near Bruma (meaning mist) and meson de venta ( wind).
the most treasured item we carried was not the corkscrew which was invaluable but the travelling kettle which was a life saver and worth the extra weight that rosie carried :wink:
