Okay then. Here's a picture of the bottle of cava we had for New Year's Eve, the one I just mentioned in my last post in the last thread. I brought it down to what is usually our beach to match my last picture but, as you can see, the beach is hiding under the river and the river is trying to hide under the ice.

Peg had corked up the bottle and placed it in the refrigerator last night after I had gone to bed. She didn't notice that I had finished it. I guess that means I can claim that I'm not too greedy as obviously she had enough.

Let's all have a much better year this year.

A First Day hike to get us back on track walking more regularly so we are ready to walk a camino when possible. It was pouring rain and slippery- brought back memories of both our Coastal Portugues and Vasco. We did however get to finally test rain gear purchased last Jan. They passed the test- we are ready.

During the video tour that Ivar gave us of the cathedral, I noticed the new very plain blonde wood pews that I assume are meant to better match the glorious bright lightness of the restored interior. I only see them once every year or two :) but when I do visit, I will miss the aged patina of the old oak pews with their wonderfully detailed arms.

Peg had tendonitis and was recovering in Astorga for a few days. We borrowed a wheelchair from the Red Cross with the help of the tourist bureau and Peg could sightsee with me. In the palace I carted the chair up the stairs while Peg hobbled up before plopping down in the chair again. As at home, the Red Cross got a good donation.

It's so interesting to see other people's photos of the same place — with different weather, different seasons, different moods. I've passed this place three times, and each time it was new. Here it is on the last day of May, 2019:

Viranani, as I approached Castrojeriz, having started from Hontanas that morning, I was most keen to find a toilet and coffee (in that order). While I noticed both buildings at the time, it is only now sitting at my desk can I see, from your composition, a striking similarity in material and profile notwithstanding their different purposes.

I've made this observation before, but here goes again.

Having been a Gaudi fan for many years and having been to three of his stuff in Barcelona when on an enforced rest in May 2016 I was hell bent to ensure I was could spend time in and around this building.

As I understand it, the epicopus what commissioned dies before it was complete and the successors declined to spend even one night inside.

It was more of a riot of space and form than I had expected. In going around I became sort of giddy with trying to work out the spatial relationships of the rooms and spaces to one another.

Until, that is, I encountered plans and a model on the upper floors.

It was quite simple: the floor plan was a cross with the arms approximately of equal length.

Kia kaha and thanks for this photo.

2018-08-29 15.50.49.jpg

In an attempt to "catch up" a bit, on my sixth day I walked past a number of potential places to stop and for longer too - a ten-hour stretch - until I arrived in Viana, out of water and very footsore.

It was 4pm by the time I stumbled into town, where I was greeted by a couple of peregrinos who were quite keen to brag about how far they had walked that day, which was pretty much the last thing I wanted to talk about.

So I bagged myself a private room for the first time, something I would do about once a week as a little treat.

The one big error I'd made in all this was that it meant that I would arrive in Logroño for breakfast the following morning.

I'll plan for a night there next time!

I was utterly entranced by the Episcopal Palace at Astorga too.

I spent a couple of happy hours wandering around in its mesmerising interior.

No one actually said the picture had to be one that you took on a Camino. So no rules bent — and it's amazing to see the snow!

Another intriguing sculpture, this time in Viana.

Does anyone know the story behind this one?


El Auroro de Viana.
"
El canto de la aurora es una tradición religiosa en la que se cantan, antes del amanecer, canciones para el santo del día para llamar así a los fieles a rezar el rosario o a misa. Esta tradición se perdió con el paso de los años, el último auroro de Viana fue el pastor Pedro Angulo Rozas, que salía solo a cantarla en la primera mitad del siglo XX. A este está dedicada la escultura que podemos ver a un lado de la portada gótica de la iglesia de Santa María de la Asunción. Actualmente la ciudad tiene un coro de auroros de Viana que lleva el nombre del pastor. "

del Norte (July/August 2019)
On the Del Norte July 2019. This was the most difficult day of all my Camino’s. Deba to Markina a 15 mile hike from the sea to deep in the mountains. At first light I set out with a young lady from Lithuania, unfortunately we went the wrong way. It was a tough go getting back on track up a steep steep hill. Hours later I missed an arrow causing me to go up, up, up a steep logging road, then having to back track. I recall collapsing on the gravel road crying hysterically hopeful someone would hear me. I was alone, lost on a mountain. I told myself, you have to continue on, sleeping out here is not an option. After a good cry I picked myself up. I finally found the arrow slightly hidden on a tree. Good thing I had some fruit with me as I was out of water with many kilograms to go. It took me 12 hours to reach my destination. 12 HOURS!!! 🤦🏻‍♀️ now I can chuckle, a little. 😁 46D0D804-927B-4274-9C98-3B24F9BAFD8C.jpeg C54D2123-BE36-45A6-9315-FAC7EAC27F4B.jpeg A7960459-CD87-4797-924E-F7340623FB0F.jpeg

After roughy 250 kilometers the del Norte proved to be too much for me in July 2019. I saw some beautiful scenery but it was difficult for me in many ways. Perhaps if I had a hiking buddy, I could have continued this way. I made it to Laredo where I bussed to Santander then hopped on a train to Fromista to finish out my Camino. The Frances was hot, hot, hot with morning start times at 5:30 or so but I was so glad to be back. 😌 The first morning out I captured these photos. As I walked along the sun slid behind a butte in the distance to only show itself again in all its glory as I and the sunflowers stood in awe. Two sunrises in one morning, the Camino will provide many a magical moment. 6984B02B-BBC4-4F0F-9185-718CEE05374E.jpeg 59F06AAF-66B8-45E2-93BF-9EEB06F01A58.jpeg

I’ve read that four modern literary/cinematic events happened that caused big influxes of Pilgrims: Shirley MacLaine (Journey of the Spirit), Poalo Coehlo influenced the Brazilians (The Pilgrimage), Hape Kerkling influenced the Germans (I’m Off Then) and finally, Emilio Estevez influenced the North Americans (The Way). I’m sure the were many others in other parts of the world!

It can get chilly but with the right clothes and sleeping bag, it’s pretty comfortable and you rarely need to worry about sweating too much :)

There are several great things about a winter pilgrimage. One is that with bare trees you get to see a lot more, the other that the mud is often frozen and so instead of sinking into it you can walk across the top of it. Another thing is that often the weather is dry, but cold, except of course in Galicia where one should always expect rain at some point.

I have no complaint about the number but the size causes problems for some. That makes it hard for them to enjoy the thread. If people have an old or slow system they have to wait for megabytes of files they may have already seen to load before seeing the new pictures. I made two posts on how to send pictures as thumbnails. The second follows immediately after the first one here: https://www.caminodesantiago.me/com...d-you-walk-locally-in-2021.69119/#post-891744

Okay I’m going to give it a try. How to post thumbnail picture’(s) 😌 This picture was taken on August 4, 2019 at predawn. I left Villares De Orbigo at 4:30 AM to Rabanal, a meer 33k’s. (20.5 miles) At times my heart would race in the darkness from hearing the owls fluttering from tree to tree and hearing something dart in front of me. I shown my iPhone light around to see they were rabbits, perhaps running from the owls. I looked back to make sure I was still alone and to see the flickering lights become more distant. All the while thinking, how crazy am I walking alone in the dark in the middle of Spain, a foreign country. I don’t know how I did it without panicking. But I had a goal. I made it to the green monster just before sunrise, I was flying. I wanted to catch my friend James from England, I found him standing in front of the cathedral in Astorga (where he stayed the night) minutes before he hit the trail. It was a long, hot grueling day. Especially towards the end, up the hill to Rabanal but I did it!!! I did it. 😀 And today I figured out how to post thumbnail pictures on this thread. Hahaha.

Gosh, the river seems quite high! Was there any risk of flooding? The Albergue looks great.

There were some days with torrrential rain indeed but no flooding.
Lots and lots of mud that made walking , especially on the hilly and rocky paths, tricky. I believe I posted some pics of that on the first daily pics thread.
The day we walked into Beasain was mostly on paved roads. Our night there was the most crowded in terms of pilgrims staying. Four! Us two and then two men. So the hospitaleros put us in one room and the guys in another.
The most kind voluntarios I ever encountered. They offered us their private tumbledryer to get our clothes dry again.

Oops!!! It appears I have broken the rules for this thread by posting multiple times today and multiple photos.
Pace yourself, @four seasons. ;)
We're in this for the long haul. One pic per day for a year is...well, you know...it adds up.
And it'd be a pity if you ran out.

Always, always, look up at the ceilings. So often so many treasures hidden in plain view.
Absolutely.
This is one of my favorites: the church of San Francisco in Villafranca del Bierzo.

Dalí Museum, Figueres, on the Camino Catalan.

I confess that we didn't walk to Figures.
But we did walk to the museum.

I didn't at first. Not until I saw the picture and remembered some posts. We missed it. As soon as we made it to the Albergue de Jesus in Mazarife Peg could literally walk no farther. She was lame with a case of tendonitis. She had to hop. A day of rest did no good. The next day Jesus, running an errand, brought us a bit out of his way to the clinic in Astorga.

Geez, why are my picture postings such a hot topic? But for all the wrong reasons. 😔 Rick doesn’t have a complaint about how many pictures. You shouldn’t either. Besides it’s the size that matters 🤣🤣🤣 oh and I have plenty Camino pics, you’ll see.

Hi @FourSeasons - keep in mind that if you’d like to post many photos at once, you always have the option to post to the media section of the forum where there definitely isn’t a limit of one photo per day :)

I appreciate that but isn’t having a story behind the pictures a part of this thread? 🙂 The media it’s only pictures. I like reading and telling stories and seeing the picture/pictures that inspired the words. Don’t you?
