Sometimes they are a bit slow to load up, but they get there in the end (like our car).Is anyone else having trouble loading the photos when you bring this thread up, or is it just me?
My photo of the day is a random click with my eyes closed. From the rooftop tour of the cathedral, April 2015 - all of us peregrino/as acting like a class full of curious little kids.

I know, I would consider it more in the "mourners" category but the guide to statues I got from the tourist office said it's an angel. there were many statues I took pictures of that I puzzled over a bitIs that really a statue of an angel? Well, it obviously is. But geeze - it creepily looks like a ringwraith.
Which Camino is that on? Did you visit the train museum in ponferrada or Madrid?6 Oct 2021, Monforte de Lemos. I love that they can deliver people's bread by just hanging it on the doorknob in a plastic bag. The town has many attractions, including a Railway Museum (which I was forbidden to visit under threat of divorce) the monastery, and the centre of viniculture which showcases Mencía wine. We both enjoyed that one.

Although these photos don't seem to have much in common, together they created a good mood.
Photo #1: After a short day from Villafranca del Bierzo to Vega de Valcarce, we arrived at Albergue El Paso (an unexpectedly great stop), where I had the time, the sun, and the supplies (soap, a scrub brush, and a water hose) to clean and dry my backpack. For days it had felt and smelled like I was carrying an animal carcass on my back.
Photo #2: The next morning, I began my trek to O Cebreiro with a clean, fresh pack on my back while walking through the crisp, beautiful countryside. The simple pleasures (a clean pack and a very nice walk) are what I remember most about that day.
Heads up One-A-Day posters.
We're well over 1000 posts, so tonight my time (morning US East Coast) I'll post a new thread. One nice thing about starting new iterations of this topic is that none of us will notice if you're being repetitive. .
Thank you for the joy you bring here every day with your beautiful images.
I'm on my phone so need to post from my album here, sorry!
