@Doughnut NZ and @VNwalking : you both are way too kind.

One of the reasons of walking a Camino ( only half kidding ) is that I can eat what I what I like without having to worry about the weightgain.

Seriously, it would be wonderful if we could meet up somewhere in Spain and share a table.

Was just looking into the social media pages of AMA in the town of Tolosa. The pintxo bar @VNwalking and I visited when on the Vasco Interior.

Sounds perfect but I have no intention of walking another Camino until next year at the earliest. While I have been vaccinated I am not in a rush to go on a pilgrimage until everything settles down and has been stable for a while.

It will have to wait until 2022.

El Camino, just after Santibanez de Valdeiglesias, on the way to Astorga. I have several photos of El Camino, but for some inexplicable reason, this is one of those that appeals to me very much. I presume that many of you also have those 'special photos' that also speak to your soul. Let's go find some more!

photo taken January 11, 2011

Crossing this bridge over the frozen river Arre would be very slippery; arriving at Trinidad de Arre had been difficult for the CF path from Zubiri was slick with ice and snow. Thus I mainly walked on the verges of route N-135.

Puente de Barcelos. I think this where there could have been accommodation offered in the Fire Station. I would have liked to test that out! This has caused me to ask myself the question: what makes a pilgrim? Please do not attempt to answer! if you are on a pilgrimage, you are a pilgrim. Full stop. Enjoy, or suffer, your choice. :D

Alone in hazy sunshine I walked along the shore through Finisterre and beyond towards Cape Finisterre.

Wayside views were shore, scrub, and endless sea.

The wind was brutal and the surf rough, but it was glorious to just be in the salty air.

Two photos after the bridge in Barcelos. Looking at this now, I am struck again by the unadorned simplicity of the execution - in both sense - of the piece. Street art, street architecture, the built environment - they are teaching us all the time. The dandelion that bursts through the cracks in the concrete is saying: I was here before you! I think if I had to repeat a camino, it would be the Portuguese from Oporto. I do not know why, exactly.

Bercianos del Real Camino - a detail of the stone patterned floor in the foyer of this donativo albergue. The floor, although attractive, was not particularly comfortable for bare feet as I found out! This albergue was very welcoming, thanks to the hospitaleros.

I remember that albergue fondly. We were 56 at the table, the place was full. We washed the dishes all together and then sat on the patio to play music and sing. Most of us also went to see the sun set. A beautiful summer night.

At 35 rua del Vilar is the historic Cafe Casino which has existed since 1873. The old-fashioned decor (upgraded with WiFi) reminded me of the old Algonquin in NYC when I was much younger.

I have happily sat in the Cafe Casino for hours while nursing a drink watching the world go by.

Love that place. It reminds me of the elegant coffee houses in Buenos Aires. And I agree, sit by the front windows and watch the world go by.

There are some who say the Norte is more of a road than a path at times.

I couldn't possibly comment.
Although we walked the Norte in 2018, it seems like yesterday when we walked on that stretch of road.😉 The day we walked it was quite warm and sunny. 🙏

Our sleeping quarters at the albergue in Mansilla de las Mulas. Usually when we entered an albergue, the hospitaleros would take one look at us and say to me "You get the lower bunk," while my Camino companion was asked to take an upper berth and leave the lower ones for the "older" pilgrims. 😁 Age has its little privileges from time to time! Looking at this photo today, I wonder what the density of bunks and beds will be like in the post-COVID Camino environment.

I think Puente de Lima. if the spelling is wrong, forgive me. Seeing this, I am reminded of the simple pleasure I get each time I am in the Mercado in Pamplona, looking at all the fish and fruit and meat and herbs and spices... the fillet of this or that fish in a supermarket or even a fishmonger at home could be anything! There, you can ask and you almost get the genealogy recited!!!

Quiet street in Tudela. With camera ( CCTV ? ). Must say it was the first time that , apart from cities like Madrid and Barcelona , I saw one of those. Well most probably there are more of them but it did not attract my attention.

One day at a time, one photo at a time.

This one is a scan of a print, so not the best resolution. But for me, very special. I had walked that year with my daughter from SJPDP. So here I am, facing the camera, about to enter the Holy Door on 26 July 2004, the day after the Feast of St James in a Holy Year.

200106 68 (1).jpeg

Edited to add: and I note I am wearing my Aarn front packs, and also my backpack! In those day we did not have to leave them outside the Cathedral, although I can see my daughter's pack dropped on the ground, presumably while she took the photo.

Petroglyph%0A.jpg

In Galicia the routes to Muxia and Finisterre split at the juncture DP 3404/ DP 2302. On the right DP 3404 went to Muxia; I turned left on DP 2302 towards Finisterre.

Hidden in the wood on a dirt path off DP 2302 this giant rock with petroglyphs seemed magical and a bit threatening as if it might erupt.

My little nest at the albergue USDA in Obanos. Camino Frances. April 2011.

According to Gronze still temporary closed. In 2011 there was only that one albergue and one private pension. Lots has changed seeing there is much more accomodation now.

I remember there were only nine pilgrims staying that night and we all went for dinner at a bar/ restaurant next door. The only day on the Camino that I went out with so many people. I'm not a big fan of the concept of a " Camino family " but the composition of this group was perfect. Caring , listening and at the same time not too clingy.

Sabine,
"Caring, listening and not too clingy" could be great. In all my caminos I never walked 24/7 with a so-called camino family; thank goodness and thanks to late autumn/winter weather.

Yes, group dynamics.
It was in Obanos , on that first Camino for me that I met a Dutch lady ( the fact that we heard each other talking in English with a Lowlands accent made us laugh and we continued in Dutch ).
Anyway, we met daily ( did never walk together though ) and more or less chose the same albergues for the next weeks. But in Calzadilla de la Cueza she decided to slow down a bit ( partly because of kneeproblems ) and decided to do some shorter distances while I continued and we said goodbye to each other. Everything in a very friendly way ( we met in later years for local walks here ).
I remember how strange some of our fellow pilgrims found this. One even accused me of abandoning " my Camino sister ".

I've been going back through all of my Caminos, and cleaning out photos I don't need.
I'm finding that some of my FAVORITE photos are of places I've stayed.
This was also in 2009 and we found bedbugs inside the albergue in Molinaseca, so we chose to sleep out on the patio. It was a wonderful night! In fact I think most of my favorite nights were nights I slept outdoors.

Cape Finisterre, Iron Cross.jpg


After dawn I walked alone the last kms along the sea. Rain and tears were pouring down when I finally reached the old iron cross by the lighthouse.

At land's end my 7th Camino ended after nine weeks walking. Silently I gave heartfelt thanks for all that had been and for all who had helped to make it so.

...And now in 2021, I give thanks for the memories!

I am a terror for deleting information, but at least I have the daily totals for the camino from Oporto to Santiago. That clues me in to some of the locations! We walked on a Sunday from Tamel to Ponte de Lima. The costs for the day, for two, were:
2 sachets of colacao, 50 cent
lunch €9.50
coffee €1.00
dinner €14.00
albergue €10.00
shopping €4.75
Total €39.75
There was a steady group of pilgrims all the way, but we were not a family. We just walked the same distance, met up, split up, maybe ate together... and at the end, we all met in Casa Manolo, in Santiago.
Photo today: Preparing for a medieval fair in Ponte de Lima.

If you like flying buttresses, then you'll love Iglesia de Santa María de la Asunción in Castro Urdiales.
It is glorious isn't it? And in the most wonderful position, set out on the point, with just the lighthouse and rock bridge, looking out to sea. Castrol Urdiales was one of my favourite towns on the Norte.

Roncesvalles - the tomb of Sancho the Strong (Sancho VII) from the 13th century, in the Chapel of St. Augustine, part of the church of Santa Maria de Orreaga. According to forensic records, Sancho the Strong stood at 2.15 m (7'4") making him one of the tallest monarchs in world history, and was probably the reason for his descriptions as "The Strong". His effigy on the tomb is full of symbolism ... position of the feet, position of the arms and hands, etc. I wonder though, is anyone ever buried like this any more?

It was my endpoint of walking on my first Camino, and what a place to finish!

I took a coach to Santander to rest there before taking a ferry to Plymouth, my hometown.

Seeing this scallop shell hung at the open doorway of the Roncal albergue during my first Camino Frances I immediately sensed that pilgrims were welcome to enter.
Life on the camino in 2004 was much more relaxed than it is today in 2021.

Taken before Ponte de Lima, I think. 2013.
Such a pretty display. Certainly transforms the place with the rusty roof.
I’m not going to throw anything at you but I’m sure the gardener of the above could make a display of carrots, onions and potatoes look equally appealing…if that is what he had.
I also enjoyed seeing the maize everywhere ..

Finisterre, at last! The feelings I got when I first heard the waves crashing and then I saw the Atlantic, from the other side of the ocean! Happiness to finally be there, relief because it was a long day, sadness that it was over...

Between Logrono and Navarette on the CF the Camino runs parallel to the A12 for a while. I am not sure if you can make out the many makeshift crosses affixed to the chain link fence in this photo. This pilgrimatic expression stretched on for about a half kilometer. That's a lot of crosses. I appreciated this type of expression much more than the garish graffiti that is unfortunately encountered along the Camino.

Entering the medieval city through the Puerta del Camino my heart beat faster as I hurried along the narrow pedestrian lanes, rua Casas Reales, rua das Animas and plaza Azabacheria (after jet jewelry craftsmen).

And there it was! The cathedral!

The angle of approach makes a difference. From the church of San Martin in Fromista. In the first photo the rather morose-looking Madonna looks like she is getting ready to punch someone ... whereas from a different angle she actually offers a hand of greeting or blessing.

Day one of my walk from Santo Domingo de Silos to Burgos and beyond started out by unknowingly taking the wrong path, a GR rather than the Camino. But the view was spectacular as the path left town. I did not yet know that I was already on the wrong path. That would come later.

One of many Fatima shrines at a home along the CP. This one had a motion activated recording of "Ave Maria'. Almost all of the yellow arrows were accompanied by a blue arrow point to Fatima. It gave you extra navigation -- walk opposite the blue arrows.

Funny story with this post when we walked the route from Lourdes.

I had bought some cheese earlier in Toulouse
but when I dug it out of my Mochila to offer to share it
I took one whiff and tossed it in the garbage.
Later that night some French pilgrims were looking for a lost digital card in the trash
and they all were shocked to find half a round of cheese in the basura.




They cracked up when I held my nose and told them it STUNK!
They said the stinker the better! Whew! That was mighty good cheese.
They tried to give it back but I declined.
No, merci!

As promised. In addition to @JohnLloyd 's post yesterday of the Santander statues.
Different angle.I did not walk the Norte but flew into Santander and from there I took the FEVE train to Ferrol to start the Ingles.
Had some time for sightseeing.
I believe I posted this picture last year in the first daily pictures thread.

Day one of my walk from Santo Domingo de Silos to Burgos and beyond started out by unknowingly taking the wrong path, a GR rather than the Camino. But the view was spectacular as the path left town. I did not yet know that I was already on the wrong path. That would come later.
Hmmm... why does this sound so familiar 😁

View along my own wrong path after Las Medulas on the Invierno which also brought spectacular views and a wonderful encounter with some residents of the little village of Yeres, who led me to a path which led to the right path.
