CF August 9, 2019 on the way down from O Cebreiro. Does anyone know what kind of flower/fruit this is? It's beautiful and interesting looking. Its nectar must be sweet as the bee stopped to take it in. Is it a fig or prickly pear?

Would love to say i found it, but no. Prickly pear seem to be attached to succulents, and your photo does not seem to be so attached... but then, I used a very superficial search!

You are brilliant!! I only have my photos on my iPhone but I swiped up on the photo and there is a leaf icon that says Look Up-Plant. So, I did and it's a species of plant Musk thistle.
Carduus nutans, with the common names musk thistle, noddling thistle and nodding plumeless thistle, is a biennial plant in the daisy and sunflower family Asteraceae. It is native to regions of Eurpoe and Asia.
It’s pretty but quite thistley. 😬 Now we know. 🤣

Help me - how did you get the leaf Icon? Yesterday I tried not very hard to find an identifier but it was going to cost me money and I said no thanks... I have an iphone and an ipad - what trick do I not know? Thanks in advance.

Okay let’s see if I can help. I have iPhone 10. Go to your photos on your phone, select the photo as to open it on the screen. Once the photo is the only thing on the screen, put your finger on the photo then swipe up. I never knew this feature was there. If you don’t see it you may need to do an update. Let me know what you find. 😁

Bon voyage! Wheels up! ✈️ Make sure it’s a picture of a plant, hence the leaf. 😁
I asked my phone (how sad is that?!) if I could access name that plant and instead found this one, plantsnap. Smashing! I will enjoy using it. Thanks for passing on the idea! Here is one from where I am at this moment:

Funny, when I walked to Santiago in October 2013, I never saw the monument however in 2019, it was bam, right there. I said to myself, how could I have missed this, it’s huge. So glad I got to spend some time on the “Hill of Joy”.

When I was there on August 15, 2019 it was roped off. Where did the move it to?

Having finished the Ruta do Mar on the 1st of May, 2022 we stayed in Ferrol for 3 days before going on the Camino Inglés. We walked by the City Hall plaza and were delighted to sit and stay for a while because there was an international piano contest taking place and some participants came to play outdoors throughout the day!

I was so moved by this banner on the façade of City Hall with the names of all the people from Ferrol who were assassinated by the Franco's Nationalist forces.

I had to ask some locals for information when I saw this at the shipyard in Ferrol in May 2022 . This is what they told me: “The action was a protest by the workers objecting the elimination of positions by hanging the work clothes of those who actually lost their jobs. They were also protesting because the employees had not received their pay for 2 months, while the company claimed almost 5 million euros from the public shipyard.”

Thank you so much for sharing this bit of helpful information. Now I don't really need the app I have for plant identification, I'll just take a photo;)

Oh the pleasure of memories! I stayed there in 2004 also on my 1st. Located on route N135 opposite the Casa Sabrina hotel and installed in a buttressed windowless barnlike space it boasted superb tiled state of the art showers/toilets in the newly excavated basement – a great example of architectural adaptive reuse!

Sept 3, 2013, I was so excited to stay in this alburgue where many a head did lie. It definitely set the mood. 😊
EDIT: I walked into Roncesvalles at 7:00pm (hobbled) and was fortunate enough to get one of the last bunks in this historical building. An evening/night I'll ever forget.

Do they still use this?

I’m posting this photo today, of my first arrival in Santiago on October 17, 2015 because I’m about to set off again. Leaving home this Saturday and starting my Camino from Roncesvalles on March 22. This will be my third Camino Frances, sixth Camino in total.
I won’t post for a while, as I’ve pretty well run out of photos worth posting anyway, but if I get some good new photos I’ll post from the Camino!

May 2022 in Ferrol we visited the neighborhood of Canido to see some urban artistic renditions of Velázquez Las Meninas. There are paintings of all sizes, styles (some could be considered irreverent;-), and with all kinds of messages, throughout the streets of Canido. I took many pictures, and unfortunately I cannot share all of them, so here are a couple of mine and a link to some information about the route of Las Meninas - one of the things to see in Ferrol:)


Here is a link about to the original painting at the Prado Museum in Madrid:

In Ferrol May 2022, this is a photo of the Concatedral San Julián de Ferrol (Co-Cathedral of San Julián de Ferrol) which dates to the mid-late 1700's. Pope John XXIII on March 9, 1959, elevated the parish church of San Julián de Ferrol to the category of co-cathedral of the Mindoniense-Ferrolense diocese therefore establishing second place among all those of the bishopric.

A path towards paradise.

At Santa Maria de Eunate one senses the eternal peace of paradise. Set within a natural bowl this thousand year old church is timeless.

October 2011 four other pilgrims and I stayed in the then open albergue. At an evening prayer service within the mystic church we offered thanks for our caminos, our lives and our loves. All was transcendent.
...May peace reign here another thousand years.

CF Santiago, August 15, 2019. (I deleted my other entry for today.)
OMG - I nearly forgot I walked into Santiago after a very hard Camino three years ago today. I started in Irun on July 5. At Santander I switched to the CF to Fromista. I hurt my leg walking from Fromista to Sahagun (not in one stage 🤣) I rested three days then took a train to Leon for an additional seven days rest. Finally on my way to Santiago with no other issues, thank God. It was an amazing, beautiful and all around challenging Camino. No more challenging than Camino's one and two just in a different way. I was so happy and overjoyed to see many familiar, welcoming faces at the plaza. It was full of pilgrims when I arrived, I've never seen so many at one time, in one place. Well maybe after Sarria 🤣

While on rest in Leon I purchased the shoes you see in the picture in post #1053. I think maybe the shoes I used for del Norte were part of my leg issue. 🤷🏻‍♀️ Not 100% sure, just a hunch. Maybe these were Camino magic shoes because there were a few times I felt like I was flying. Just as my license plate reveals. 🤣

3rd of May, 2022 in Restaurante Marisquería O'Xantar in Ferrol, - a renowned seafood restaurant, we had an unforgettable gastronomical experience! Not only was the food and the wine perfect, but we also had the most professional waiter ever - Abel who was thrilled to select and suggest different dishes for us! It was a celebration for having finished the Ruta do Mar and Abel definitely made it memorable!

del Norte to CF July 19, 2019. What a day! I walked from Liendo to the Laredo bus station, hopped on a bus to Santander, caught a train (which I almost missed) to Fromista. Ah, back on the Frances. :) I wasn't sure how crowded it would be so I booked a room. Upon arrival I found the alburgue had plenty of beds. Oh well, I'll enjoy the upgrade. Planning an early morning departure due to high heat. Welcome home. 😎🌻

I wonder when, why and by whom these stone cairns were carefully errected along the CF near Sansol.
No idea as to specifics, but some pilgrims were already doing that in 2006, and no doubt before. I think of cairns and found this:

Welcome view of Roncesvalles from the road, the end of a long day from SJPP via Valcarlos, March 2015. It was not yet possible to walk on the path down from Ibaneta - there was way too much snow. When I got there, I was stunned by all the pilgrims. Where had they come from? It wasn't SJPP. Only later did I learn that many people start at Roncesvalles. This was before booking was possible and it was first come, first served. I felt lucky to get a bed.

May 2022 we visited the Arsenal de Ferrol which is a military base and arsenal of the Spanish Navy and during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) it served as a concentration camp for Republican prisoners. Now it holds the Shipbuilding Museum and the Naval Museum - not to miss if you find yourself in Ferrol!

Within this splendid Gothic mausoleum San Juan de Ortega/ Saint John of the Nettles is buried. A follower of Santo Domingo de la Calzada, San Juan was, like him, a 12th c. builder of roads, bridges and hospices for pilgrims.

2003 CF Roncesvalles to Santiago
2/4 weeks on the CF frequently.

It was the colours of their clothing and their flamboyant demeanor that attracted me to them. D5825893-9538-4A8B-B44D-656FF19C10A0.jpeg
