...laughing all "The Way"...

"Oh the weather on the Camino
Is great for all that we know.
But three weeks of sun were for show...
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..."

Yes. Snow. Between Bercianos del Real Camino and El Burgo Ranero. Not in the Pyrenees. On the meseta.

And, despite three weeks of mainly glorious weather, I kinda liked it!

My pack was lighter since I wore most of my clothes. My Boomerang poncho worked a treat, cutting the wind and keeping me dry, first time out of the bag. And I substituted Christmas songs for the marches I usually hum.

I was grouchy in Sahagún; I think the Lord wanted to give me a little wake-up call. Didn't have any bells for Bobtail, but it did make spirits bright!

Wow, one of my favourite places, would have loved to be there singing ''Jingle Bells''.
I was high up on the Ridgeway near Marlborough yesterday and got a good pelting with hailstones.
Buen Camino

Take a look at my icon picture. That was taken towards the end of May in 2014. After the heat of the Meseta, I loved the snow.

Cannot picture Dunstan Ramsay--or Robertson Davis, either--on the Camino, and I did try to visualize it.

Please use a bit of care to keep potential political remarks or opinions out of the forum.

Thanks for understanding.

God love you, Ginnie! You're the only one who's known DR, or Davies for that matter. 5th biz is my favourite book, and Dunny is my fave character. Given the plethora of saints on the CF I felt his was an appropriate avatar.

Had a dusting of snow here in Salt Lake City today too.

Buen Camino Dunny, I'm glad you are having a good time and enjoying the weather and the meseta!
