We didn't take one with him, but we DID take one of Joe sitting in Leon with Gaudi!

Haven't got to Burgos yet, but here is Adolphe Sax in Dinant, Belgium. Peter is not sitting next to him but patiently waiting just ahead for me to stop faffing about with the camera and catch up.

Here you go. Just before I was told the second time to go home. I went into the cathedral and prayed for guidance. I threw away the walking stick you see in the picture..I had carried it as I did the Appalachian Trail in 96' went to a medico supply store for a new one (or two).

Buen Camino

Here's mine. Not great quality as it was taken with a camera phone (left my lovely SLR camera behind to save on weight but next time will definitely take it with me!)

ps. my strategically placed hands covered large holes in my trousers, where the material had worn off between my thighs from too much wear and tear while walking :oops: . I bought a new pair the next day.

Camino Frances (2006)
Here's my photo with that well-known sculpture, taken May 2006. Does he have a name?

There're also sculptures of resting pilgrims in front of San Marcos in Leon, and in Monte do Gozo (looks like she's ready to prick her blisters). I know there's another at Mansilla de las Mulas, but are there any others like these on the Camino Frances I may have missed?
