Praia de Escorde 02.04.2006..jpg

In 2006 crossing the beach barefoot while holding my boots like a child I delighted in the tickle of sand between my toes. Estorde is the first beach on the camino path linking Corcubion/San Roque to Finisterre. Mid view is Finisterre; Cape Finisterre is on the far left.

I had a lovely time with fellow pilgrim Jim from the USA.We met the day before at a lunch organised by mutual friends and we decided to spend our last evening in Santiago at this wonderful place.

For those who do not know it...do give it a try.

Albergue at Pasajes de San Juan to open up, April, 2018.
In the Pais Vasco, that attractive swirly icon is everywhere, usually over doorways. Not knowing what it meant, at first I cynically assumed it was a modern invention, contrived by a PR firm somewhere. That couldn't be more wrong.

These are hooked crosses, called lauburu, that go back to antiquity.

Here is one from a little past Zegama on the Vasco, 2019.

twisted spire
That's not just twisted, it's bent too. For some reason - and who knows why - this looks vaguely sinister (no pun intended).

Loved walking across the amazing Ponte Internacional. Such a delight, the Minho river far below and the fortress of Tui on the hill opposite. As many will know the engineer was a disciple of Gustave Eiffel and you can certainly see the design imprint of the latter.

@kohara - Looking back in the other direction is the Fortaleza de Valença. Had I not been injured and needed to stay off my feet during my rest day in Tui, I would have loved to explore the fort. Someday...

Phoenix,
This is a lovely shot of a wonderful spot. When you do go back try to stay at the Pousada within the fortress. See some happy memories here.

Looking back seems a theme. I do a lot of that, and not just a glance, but stand and gawk at the sunrise, or the receeding hills. It's amazing I get where I'm going sometimes.
(If I get responses, they're two kinds: People either turn and look, and go 'woooow,' or ask what I'm looking at, without turning and using their own eyes. 😂)

From my most recent camino, a long look back at the way behind me from near Zalduondo, having come up from Zegama and through the Tunel San Adrian - drinking in the feeling of having accomplished something challenging.

Great photo Rowena. I must remember to do that in future ... look back. Bronte bear, on the other hand does that all the time, so he sees an entirely different perspective of every walk.
The church of Saint-Michel d'Aiguilhe (Saint Michael on the Needle) atop the basalt outcrop reached via 268 stone steps that wind up the side. All worth the effort for magnificent vistas over Le Puy.

Bronte certainly enjoys a different perspective as shown in these photos of that needle. Might he also attempt walking backward?

And talking of backpacks. From my first camino. It is a beast, all 55 litre containing 2.5+ kilos of it. Fantastic for bushwalking and overnight camping, not so great for the camino. The bright red has now faded to a dusty pink, but it is still going strong, just not on the camino.

I think the usual explanation is that it was fairly common in mediaeval times to use unseasoned timber which would shrink and change shape as the timber dried out. There was a thread earlier this year about twisted church spires. Apparently, there are websites and clubs of aficionaodos devoted to the subject. Takes all sorts.

I'll put it to him mspath :) though he's quite happy strapped securely into my backpack. He often has chats to people we never get to see as they're behind us! Your own photos always amaze me as you obviously rise early enough to see sunrise and capture many evening/night shots. I have to admit we were not early risers but rarely the last to leave the albergues either. Just loving all these posted images and long for the opportunity to walk another Camino but they're a loooong way from home.

Calle del Crucifijo is named for the Iglesia del Crucifijo; the church is in turn named for a famous crucifix displayed inside. In this view the curve of the church apse is visible on the right/north side of the calle. A lighted covered passage links the church to the Convento del Crucifijo on the left/south side of the calle; a private school, the Colegio de los Padres Reparadores, occupies that space.

I've decided to play a game.
The person right before me posts from a year I walked a camino, that's the file where I'll find an image to share.

So 2016, Camino San Olav:
My welcoming committee in Mambrillas, after a stunning but very long day from Santo Domingo de Silos. The two ladies had a place to stay there, and the guy was from the next village over, and took overflow from their CR. I was the overflow.

It was wonderful, so much kindness! Laurie had helped me arrange it, and they were waiting for me when I arrived, only 5 minutes later than I had expected - in spite of getting lost twice and walking about 7km more than I expected to that day

I'm doing something different today to save space on Ivar's server. A couple of days ago in the thread Your Favorite Sello @Peregrinopaul posted a shot of Sahagún's "Halfway" Certificate instead and I noticed that Peg and I were there on the same day. We stayed in town longer though and got to see some interesting sights so a posted two pictures of them. The link will bring you to my post.



Should we reconsider how to post here to save space on the forum's server? I am not technical at all so I would really appreciate if you have some thoughts about this?
These are wonderful threads but it would be a pity if we would slow down the process.

No. For speed we are fine as long as we continue to post thumbnails in threads that are heavy in photos. For threads that don't have many photos then full size pictures are okay.

My post was to spare Ivar from having two identical pictures sitting on his server with two different filenames, a waste of maybe up to 3 MB.

I'll suggest another way to save space on the server but its intended for people who already know how to do it. You can edit the picture to a lower resolution (be smaller). For example, the full size picture of the cloister I sent in the other day is 2,160 pixels by 3,840 pixels and takes up 2.9 MB of disk space. The resolution of it is probably sufficient to print an 8x10 photograph but pictures on the web look just fine with the longer dimension being about 1,000 pixels. I used the Snapseed app to make a copy of my photo and it generated a 450 pixel by 800 pixel image that just took up 161 KB of disk space which is about 6% of the size of the original image.

Ivar hasn't closed this thread so no one should worry about the size of the pics but if you can easily reduce the size it's a plus.

I have wanted to go and do the Somport from Lourdes for many years but have never got around to it. I have however been to Lourdes a number of times. I hope that you will forgive me a picture of happier times in Lourdes, 2014.

Ah the fresh white asparagus from Navarra.Especially Tudela is famous for this product.


I had the luck of having them fresh ( and luckily without the mandatory mayonaise that seems to be the preferred sauce in Spain ).
They are almost as good as our local Belgian ones... :) ( we generally serve them with a butter, hardboilt egg and parsley sauce ).

From Astorga we had stopped for the day in Santa Catalina; a short day due to it being Peg's first day walking after four days off due to tendonitis. It was too short of a day for me so I headed to El Ganso to take pictures as I wouldn't have time the next day. Just before getting back to Santa Catalina I had a short chat with a local who saw me walking both ways and was curious as to why I would do that.

As I took this view of the Arga River churning/overflowing during winter rain a slim fellow appeared holding a large open umbrella. Living nearby he had purposely walked to see the roiling water. After suggesting a dryer/safer path, we shared his umbrella as he led me cross country to the Trinidad de Arre monastery albergue.

...I fondly remember him akin to a helpful Narnia faun!

I much prefer to be behind a camera than in front of it. This one is of me, captured by a young pilgrim (I think she was German) as she took several photos of the sunrise looking back in the direction of Agés. She shared this one with me a few days later.

Located roughly 30 km NE from Braga the national park Peneda-Gerês is quite remote; there are many mountain trails but no albergues or official camino route; thus for hiking you need to "wing it"!

For several post camino Christmases during happier, easier times my husband and I enjoyed staying within the park at the Pousada Sao Bento in the earliest section of this rustic hotel complex.

We arrived into Lisbon on the night train from Irun in April, 2016, to walk the Caminho Portuguese. This was the view that greeted us when we walked out of Santa Apolonia railway station that morning at 08.00hrs. We enjoyed four days in Lisbon before starting our walk, of course, we did a lot of walking in the beautiful city of Lisbon!

It is a bit past 5 AM on Friday where I am but it is just past midnight in parts of Oceania and so it's Christmas on the island of Kiritimati (also known as Christmas Island). I'm using this moment to be the first to wish you a Merry Christmas on Christmas even though all the rest of us have to wait from an hour to a little over a day to be flipping the page on our daily planners.

Seems like a good time to post a picture of the Madonna and Child in Eunate.

2018. (Thanks Sabine!)
It was a year I also did the Ingles, but from A Coruña, preceded by the 2-day St. Finbarr Way in Ireland (Co. Cork), which was a stunning and very up-and-down pilgrimage walk, with very good company (thanks to @NualaOC !).
So two pics:
From the bridge over the River Ilen near Drimoleague, near the start of St Finbarr Way, before any climbing begins.
IMG_0062.JPG
Then the Igrexa de Santiago de Sigras, on the first day of the Camino out of A Coruña.

From Cork to Galicia, it did not feel like being in a different universe - there is much in common.
We live in a small world.

Seems like a good time to post a picture of the Madonna and Child in Eunate.
Beautiful. Merry Christmas to one and all!

Convento do Carmo. The Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is a former Catholic convent located in the civil parish of Santa Maria Maior, Lisbon. April, 2016.

A Mediaeval convent that was ruined in the great earthquake of 1755. Set overlooking the city the ruins provide a poignant reminder of the destruction wrought on Lisbon.
The ruined Convento do Carmo is situated in the Chiado district of Lisbon looking out over the city centre below. Visible from much of the downtown Baixa district of Lisbon the skeletal remains of this once great Gothic church are a lasting reminder of the events of that fateful day in 1755. Once the finest example of a Gothic church to be found in Lisbon the ruins of Carmo now serve as a poignant memorial with the pointed arches between the pillars rising up into the sky above.
In 1864 the Carmo church building was donated to the Association of Portuguese Archaeologists who in turn converted one end of the ruins into a museum. This small archaeological museum occupies nave and apse of the Church and contains exhibits from the entire span of Portuguese history. It also contains a collection of artefacts from the New World such as a Peruvian mummy and shrunken heads.

We're edging close to 1000 posts again, so once that happens I will start a new thread and ask the mods to close this one.

Amazing place @Anne&Pat! Lest we think we're immune from nasty surprises from this restless earth.
Peruvian mummy and shrunken heads.

Thank goodness it's no longer ok to acquire other people's remains as souvenirs any more. I'm a bit amazed they are still being displayed, rather than being repatriated.

I love such places, so I am sorry I missed that one. Edit: And I would have walked past it three times (but on the other side of the street).
(And I also missed seeing the peregrino with the white leather gloves. 🤭)

But I saw these gorgeous Dahlias - somewhere between Meson do Vento and the place with dinosaurs.

Casa Avelina, near Bruma, Camino Ingles June 2018. A compulsory stop on the Camino Inglese. Here it was a very welcome sight, after a very soggy mornings walk. It is a place where the warmth of welcome warms the spirit. It is a place that I look forward to on every Ingles I have walked.

How many? The only one I have walked I was wet to the gills that day. It was no surprise to be welcomed as we were, because I had heard of it ahead of time. Such a day! In the end, and from there to our end of day, we had to laugh just to keep going. When I say wet, I mean wet! Two happy meetings with @Becky 59 and family warmed us up in the course of that day.

Only three, from A Coruña, following on from a walk on the Pilgrims Way to Canterbury to make up the distance. One dry, one damp, one constant rain. Still great fun.
