Magic Annette?...they make hours vanish!

Looks like you've answered my question!!
However I can't keep track of the hours as it is ......and that's without any mushrooms!

Relax now chris after your walk
Some ciders are lovely...especially a cold cider on a very hot day...now they make them in all sorts of flavours but I still like the apple one....
Those ones in BBs neck of the woods are very strong though
I don't like beer myself...or wine

Now chris......naughty girl...why did you just mention gin...ok then, I'll just join you in having one ...or two...trouble is, I just can't take my drink......I loose hours even after one.....I'd better go and practice!!!

Maybe you are making yours too strong, Annette! A gin and tonic on a hot day is very refreshing, especially with a twist of line and ice! I don't particularly like really sweet drinks...nor really hard ones either!

BB, you are as Cher says: simply the best.

My mom has exited her room, turned on hallway light, and awaits breakfast.

She wants nice big breakfast cuz she’s hungry.

Night to some.

Good day to others.

I always measure the spirit ...same as the UK pub measure...a single is 35mls...slightly more than one fluid oz.......if I have a double the Uk measure given is 50mls ...a little less than two fluid oz ....if I didn't measure it then half the bottle might be poured!!
I've never been a big drinker really...."himself" used to say that I was a cheap night out ....boy did he save a lot of money.
I think I'll have one now as I got distracted before

Sometimes I take a fit and delete a lot of stuff from my ipad. Seems i deleted one of my favourite songs. So i include a link to a YouTube version. I love to imagine walking along, weary (ok, that is experience, not imagination!) and gradually being overtaken by this inspirational walking band of pilgrims... so I dedicate this to any pilgrim who needs a bit of a push to cooperate in this arrangement negotiated between a pilgrim and God: You pick them up, I’ll put them down...

I am enjoying your daily posts re your camino, Chris. I have not sat down with my notebook, but still, I can see the smiles of the fellow pilgrims, especially in the albergue in Ponte de Lima, which was from where one went on ahead as he had a time limit. He was such a lovely guy, from Portugal. When we reached the spot next day where pilgrims left the equivalent to a symbolic offering at the cruz de Ferro, he had left me a message, encouraging me - he knew my chicken bone weakness! also, around there, the official signs were indicating actual time spans for the sections of the walk! So he left another one, telling me it is only... so many minutes to the next spot! take your time! don't let it end too soon...

Hi Kirkie, I'm glad you are enjoying my little email blog. I can certainly tell it brings back memories for you! Your experience in Ponte de Lima was more memorable than ours as we were in a private guest house. The town, however, is exquisite and I loved it!

Then I will take turga’s advice..and follow the crowd.
That is a much better idea! Turga knows where he is going...even if it takes him three times as long as the leader of the pack!
EDIT...Oops, I see now that he is not the leader after all, but trails far behind! Poor Turga!

Like quite a few others I said: I’m leaving on a jet plane, don’t know when I’ll be back again.

This thread a held me together since it’s original inception.

If you're walking in a circle the one in the back is actually be the one way out in front.
So what do we do to catch up?

I don't see that they are all going in a circle, but you raise a good point if they were. Or what about if they were going "helter skelter"...who'd be the leader then!

After recent events I am thinking of getting another dog to keep Oscar company.
I am thinking of calling him “10 miles”.
At least that way I can say that I walked 10 miles today.
What is it in your coffee that sets off the funny side in you?!!! Anyway, even if officially you are part of a separist society, you won’t get far on Camino using miles. So, Tenkay it ought to be... you would get home sooner.

Hah! I sent off for a guide book from one of the popular sites, for my camino in August. A clerical error has given me a guidebook for a different camino. It would maybe have interested, Camino Chris, but not too sure...anyway, it does not interest me at this point in time.
Now I am waiting for the correct guide to fall through the letter box. I was so disappointed today, I knew it was from the guide crowd... but anyway, I will have to wait now for a few more days before I can attack the guide book with a hilighter pen. Is that what some people from other parts of the world call a ... sharpie? Not so sure. Anyway here I am waiting with pen poised to strike through this and that page, this and that KSO (now do you know which crowd I mean?) and I am getting a bit of collywobbles thinking of the reality.. it is a few years since I walked from Porto, and 13 since I walked from Roncesavalles. It is only a couple of years since I walked the Salvador. Don't remind me. It was beautiful and I did love every minute of the scenery etc. But it nearly broke me, that is a fact. So now, my new camino for August is a secret. Or did I mention it already? The thing is, I don't care. Right now, I am pretending it is a secret. So you don't get to the albergue before me. because, although I have never yet declared this in the open, I think I am more like Turga than any other animal on this earth.... are you really glad you decided to have a look at this post? Good. Have a nice evening. And I really do mean that.

Kirkie, I have been nterested in the Salvador for a couple of years, combining it with the remainder of the Norte. So it about did you in, huh? That's my fear, yet I like being in nature surrounded by beautiful scenery!

I am not a good example when it comes to hills. It is a really lovely camino, and I will never say it is not. You know I had trouble with my knee, and that was a lot to do with it. The great thing is, nobody needs to think they can't do something just because someone else can't...
