Here's a thread to post pictures, musings, etc. from any date in July from any year when you were on the Camino.
I have to wait a few days to get to one of my Camino dates in July. ­čśŐ

July 4th, 2017 - started my 2nd Camino, walking with my friend Julie. We had a gorgeous afternoon at Orisson

The following year I started on the Norte from Irun. Because of a cancelled flight I got a late start. Fortunately, I had reserved a room in Pasajes de San Juan

On this date 6 years ago I stopped for a beer in Mansilla de las Mulas, wondering whether to check in to the albergue, but decided to push on to Villarente.

We stopped there for a beer in 2012 by the old bridge and ended up staying for the day, a beautiful spot.

I hadn't noticed the updated month @trecile!

July 8th 2012. The day before my return flight to Australia. I sneaked a forbidden picture of Guernica at the Reina Sofia in Madrid.

We finally arrived in Santiago on day 68 from our start in St. Jean Pied de Port. 48 days of walking, 2 days touring in Burgos and Leon and 8 days of recovery from the meseta gastro-intestinal bug and post-Leon tendonitis. Poor Peg. She had a goal, it looked like she wouldn't make it but she toughed it out. She later walked a two day trip from Finisterre to Muxia but made me walk to Finisterre by myself.

In Santiago, just before getting to the Plaza Cervantes, a woman asked us if we would be interested in a nearby private room. Yes and we made the deal after an inspection. The inpection did not show the nightclub one floor below though. Peg must have been exhausted; in 5 nights there she never heard a noise even if the dead could. I didn't tell her about it for fear that she might stay awake in anticipation. It didn't bother me as I wasn't really sleeping well anyway. Everything was great otherwise, and a wonderful location.

Right after getting our compostelas I presented Peg with a gift pack of pins, patches, postcards, refrigerator magnets and other trinkets that I had been collecting for her camino completion.

The botafumeiro flew at Friday evening's mass. Ever since seeing it swing on film I thought it would be a great spectacle to see. It was only once on the camino that I found out that it was waiting for us in Santiago.

The picture shows a cross in the cathedral's cloister that we saw being wheeled earlier on our walk.

Hope so!
July 2014, LeMonastier to LeBouchet on the RL Stevenson route (GR70). Too many days near 35C for this Oregon Lad. Bailed a few days later at LaBastide to go to Paris. Walked nearly every arrondissement and loved GeoBrassens park and Le Lapin Agile.I adore walking big cities nearly as much as the Camino Frances

July 24, 2016. It was tough to pick one from today. I was very tempted to choose a photo of one of my favourite churches, in Fromista. But instead I chose this one between Castrojeriz and Fromista (42┬░16'54.0"N 4┬░16'40.0"W).

Sunflowers are always a good choice - they are so cheerful! ­čî╗

I have never walked in the heat of a Spanish summer so have missed the beauty of those bright sunflowers. I will have to keep enjoying all the spring wildflowers in a rainbow of colors as I dislike walking in heat immensely.

July 28, 2018 - I walked from Pi├▒era to Tapia de Casariego, where I stayed at the municipal albergue with the best view of any albergue!

Unfortunately, it was the day that I developed shin splints, which ended my Camino 4 days later. In hindsight, I should have taken a rest day or two in Ribadeo. I probably would have been able to continue on if I had.
I ended up doing finishing the Norte in 2019 as part of my Frances/Salvador/Norte Camino.

29 July, 2016. It was a long hot walk into Leon. I was thinking about posting a photo of the cathedral there, which is probably my favourite on the Camino. Maybe of the stained glass windows, or the cloisters, or the beautifully carved choir stalls. But as marvellous as the cathedral was, I'm not sure it was as welcome a sight as this little donativo table of cold drinks nestled among the ice on the hot, hot day under the beating sun after a climb (42┬░34'24.5"N 5┬░31'42.3"W).

Our good memories come in "all sizes and shapes", don't they.

31 July, 2016. Astorga. Once again, I wasn't sure which photo to pick: the bridge at Hospital de Orbigo, where the famous joust was fought, David's donativo, Gaudi's espiscopal palace? Eventually, I settled on this one, from the fiesta that was happening as we passed through. Taken at the entrance to the camps of the Romans and Astures just outside the city walls by the cathedral. You can see the thatched dwellings of the Astures in front of the canvas pavilions of the Romans. The city was filled with people in costume, like the ones you see in the photo.
