In 2018, I wrote on Day 6 of my Winter Camino blog about this lovely set of stones as my throne for my brief reign as “King of Navarre”! Still not sure how icy cold stone could be so comfortable and relaxing :)

Thank you, Doug.
It was a great road, beginning to end. There were many old-road remnants on the Vasco — which was wonderful for me, having grown up in the mid-Pacific where mid-19th C is super-old.

A garden full of kitch on the Frances, 2017.
In another private garden. Agés.
Another private garden (this shot shows only half of it) taken care of entirely by the woman you see. Her disabled husband sits on the sidelines and gives encouragement. She feeds many with the fruits of her labor.

On the Invierno, soon after leaving the Lalín River Walk.

Henges were often graves, yes?
No worries, John. It is likely that many who walk past assume it's part general camino theme up there; I probably would have.
@Doughnut NZ posted a photo of the plaque, but I wonder how many people notice it.

I spent an hour or so up there, enjoying the outdoor church service and a couple of bananas, but I didn’t spot the plaque.

The site is still controversial/sensitive for some people. My attempts to add a simple review of the site to Google Maps have been blocked by someone objecting.

In addition, most people will have great difficulty finding any reference to the site on Google Maps. I thought that it wasn't on Google Maps and tried to add it, finding that it is there but just super hard to find.

Perhaps @camino.ninja can help?

Hmmm, something has changed it is now easily findable on Google Maps, see: https://goo.gl/maps/61LXzXrauphQSCD6A

The website associated with the memorial (https://pazyconvivencia.navarra.es/es/memorial-fosas-del-perdón) notes that it was vandalized shortly after it was put in place.

Caminho Portugues- April, 2016 Between Vale da Figueira and Golega, we went through Azinhaga, where we stopped for a rest and some lunch. This is a dedication to Nobel Laureate Jose Saramago, who was born in this village in 1922 and died in 2010. He was the first Portugues writer to win the Nobel Prize for literature in 1998. He wrote: "As citizens, we all have an obligation to intervene and become involved- it's the citizen who changes things." His works have been published in over 30 languages.

I have a short movie of this scene in Viana do Castelo, Portugal that captures a moment I love. Wandering down this lane at mid afternoon when the streets are empty and quiet but for the sounds of laundry flapping in the breeze and through open windows, family life in the houses - children playing, laughter, dishes clattering with meals being prepared, conversation, music.

I have a short movie of this scene in Viana do Castelo in Portugal that captures a moment I love. Walking through a neighbourhood at mid afternoon when the streets are empty and quiet but through open windows, the sounds of family life in the houses. Walking down this lane, a breeze was blowing the laundry, sounds of children playing inside, dishes clattering with meals being prepared, conversation, music.

Last year I began (and ended) my odyssey in Cork. Heading to the Brittany ferry I passed by this place on Cork Harbour: Cobh, formerly Queenstown. This is the office of the White Star Line, and passengers waiting to embark on the Titanic.

By the time I reached this Camino sculpture on the outskirts of Puente la Reina, I was too tired to grasp that you were actually invited to pass through it yourself.

That's another thing on the list of things to do next time.

What was this?
Some folks with drums, some ?dancing?

Today it's tompe d'oeil: Canal or sky? This photo came out strangely two dimensional, as though someone cut colored paper and pasted it together.

It was a Saturday afternoon. I believe it was a bachelor party. Well behaving too.

Caminho Portugues- May, 2016 Quinta Da Cortica-Casa da Torre, south of Alvaiazere. The main farm house dates from 1818, this was a working farm when we went passed in 2016. In April, 2018 the owners opened a Private Albergue as well! It is 25kms from Tomar. You may spot a resting pilgrim in the shade on a very warm day!

A surprising choice of main subject. I'm curious; from the same place and time did you take other photos focusing on the label and another on the cross? If so, why did you submit this one? Was the stone the one you brought?
Interesting observation, Rick. This image was the only one I kept that day (edit: at Cruz de Ferro). The stone I brought was the pink one and on that day I was so occupied with my thoughts and prayers for the person that stone was placed there for, I actually didn’t notice the label until you mentioned it.

This was such an interesting fountain. I believe it was in Tardajos or Rabe de lasCalzadas, just before the climb up to the Meseta.

Indeed Rabé de las Calzadas.
