Aha, a little research and head scratching, and now I see that it's the Kittiwake and was indeed one of those moored for many years in Dunlaoghaire harbour. 'Coninbeg' written on the side of one of those lightships refered to the Coningbeg rock, off the Wexford coast where there was no permanent light. Useless new fact I never knew but I'm happy to know now, it evoked a memory! And it's been sitting down The Docks for years without me noticing it!
 
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Towards Chelsea Sugar Works (pink building) in the far distance, close to the harbour and then along the inner harbour track.

A Tī Kōuka (Cabbage) tree in flower in my neighbourhood.

Today was a stunning autumn day with a crystal clear blue sky.

My Chilean Guava tree fruit are almost ripe and the Kereru are flocking in to eat them.

IMG_20240321_164237105.jpg

When this particular bird flew in it was so low to the ground that I had to dip my head so that it didn't knock me out.

They need to fatten up for Winter and they eat so much that they can barely fly and tend to fly downhill after they have fed. 🥝♥️
 
8.5 k walk around Rutten where according to the legend a Frisian nobleman got killed on his way back from Santiago de Compostela. Later this Evermarus was made a saint.
Every year in this village there is big reenactment and procesion about the life of St Evermarus.
The local confraternity of St James designed a nice walk and it is en route to the Via Monastica.
It would not be Belgium without a pub and decent beers.

A quick circuit along the river and a peek to check if the passage at the end on the southside was opened yet - yes, so that makes for a more pleasant little detour.
Yet another photo of the replica of the Jeanie Johnston. I never pass that without considering the plight of all the emigrants in the 19th century, making their way to the land of opportunity. There truly is nothing new under the sun. Then, the tiny monument to the engineering wonder that helped the construction of the quay walls.
A shot of the contrast between what was monumental in the post Industrial Revolution days, and the monstrosities that pass for buildings in our day.
Later, a look at the confluence of the River Dodder and the Grand Canal with two outflows into the Liffey. I was facing the sun so you might need to enlarge the photo to see the detail.
A snap of the scene of a recent defeat of the Scots in a rugby match! 🤣🤢.
And finally, on the way home, where will I go next?

I have been doing some longer walks locally in preparation for the 33rd Canberra Two Day Walk, an event that was taken on a few years ago by the local Rotary clubs, who use it for fund-raising for their charitable endeavours. I'm normally the slowest walker to qualify on the longer distances when I attempt them, but this year I did manage to arrive a little before the qualifying time when there were other walkers behind me.

...Well, I'm still out there roaming, waiting for work, loping about Canterbury on soggy trails.

Have I mentioned it before? No? I Love Ordinance Survey Maps -the old fashioned paper ones which turn to mush in rain. A true english rambler walks in all weather, dangling a cumbersome plastic map-carrier from the neck, out front, a statement....but not me. I can't seem to buy one anywhere.

Day 26 ...grim weather. Too wet and cold to do anything but hide...

20240312_164917.jpg
Weiss piano, empty church, super heating.

Day 27 ...from Canterbury Cathedral through Stodmarsh wetlands to Plucks Gutter: six hours balancing and skidding ankle deep in mud. Low light.

20240313_132447.jpg
20240313_133222.jpg

I missed the bus back. I was standing on the wrong side of the road. No light left for walking so I hitched a ride thinking to go to Monkton, not too far. The driver said, No, it's best that I take you to the Nuns in Minster. They'll know what to do with you... RC Nuns in Thanet???? I thought they'd vanished...

20240313_202624.jpg

Day 28 Minster to Ramsgate. An odd day, feeling glum.

Comfort food in a 1940s Tea Shop. Pudding with lashings of hot custard and clotted cream. Old songs crackling through the air. Air raid hats and coats slung on hooks, Union Jacks, The Royal Family...that kind of thing.

20240314_141003.jpg
Waitresses in flower prints, pinnies and cardies. Sensible shoes.

20240314_111321.jpg
St Augustine's Cross, Ebbfleet

Day 29 ..following The Saxon Shore Way to Deal. Battling head winds along the sea front; cups of tea with the Sallies in Deal. Busing back to Canterbury for another night in The Cathedral Precinct.

20240315_123510.jpg

View attachment 20240315_122847.mp4

Day 30 ...then along the coastal path and chalky cliffs from Deal to Dover. 17 kms. France on the horizon, phone signals haywire: 'Welcome to France' then moments later, 'EE hopes you enjoyed your trip, Welcome back'.

20240316_121936.jpg

...Almost "The End" ...

Hi there @ dougfitz! It's good to see you here. Long time no see...
I try and keep a lowish profile these days. I am getting ready to return to the Gudbrandsdalsleden after 12 years of doing other routes, and walking up the western shores of the lakes after leaving Oslo.
 
Local walk via the cemetery where there is a beautiful artwork by Wesley Meuris.
Tackled some small hills.
Stopped for a croque at a local brasserie.
Already lots of tourists enjoying the blossoms.

A quick trot up Mt Eden (elevation 196 metres
Made me think of what was probably an even quicker trot up Mount Benten. Officially the lowest mountain in Japan. All 6.1 metres of it. :cool: I saw it mentioned in the Shikoku pilgrimage guide and kept my eyes peeled in case I walked past without noticing it. It is hiding in the clump of trees. The third picture is a Google Translate version of the sign.

A quick trot up Mt Eden (elevation 196 metres - one of seven major volcanoes in Auckland) after lunch with friends.
The place where this photo was taken is a harvested sunflower field located approximately 17 km from the town of Ronda, southern Spain. At 36.878° north latitude, 5.236° west longtitude, this field is the antipode to Mt. Eden, Auckland New Zealand (at 36.878° south latitude, 174.764° east longtitude.)

From our first trip to Spain. Picked because it was the antipode to Mt. Eden which I had been to. Peg has since summited Mt. Eden so we are both antipodian.

I have looked up the antipode of my house and in a future trip to Spain (perhaps this year) I will make a point of visiting it in the South of Spain. 🥝♥️🇪🇸

A forest trail walk. Thrilled to see a Rufous Hummingbird, the hummer with a remarkably long migratory path. The return journey is about 6500 km, from its wintering grounds in southern Mexico to its summer breeding grounds in northern British Columbia and central Alaska. They usually arrive early spring just as the salmonberry and red currant bushes are blossoming - both are abundant in this area.

Cheers @Peter Fransiscus , I learned something new.

" Het Kasteel Heusden dateert uit de 12e eeuw. In de buurt van dit kasteel ontwikkelde het huidige stadje Heusden zich. In het jaar 1157 was er al sprake van een conflict over het bezit van de kapel tussen de abt van Sint-Truiden en een Tempelier."
Quite amazing how in the middle ages a town in Belgium ( my town of birth ) claimed to have rights so way up north.

On Easter Sunday a small group of us walked up to the ridge line overlooking the Orroral Valley, one of the earliest places where Europeans settled to the south of Canberra, and later the site of one of the satellite tracking stations used by NASA during the moon landings.
20240331_095929.jpg
Granite tors, including one nicely balanced on its neighbours on the top of the ridge. The next two images are the views across the valley from the other side of that gap in the rocks.

20240331_100709.jpg
Looking east across the Orroral Valley. This was a major grazing property running both sheep and cattle. There are two homestead sites here, although traces of the earlier homestead are scant. In the early days of European settlement, these would have had a high level of self-sufficiency, with homestead gardens, orchards, house cows and probably a poultry run. Dry goods like flour and sugar would have been brought in from the nearest town along with other farming supplies, probably two or three days away for most horse drawn drays, perhaps a bit less for a light farm cart or buggy.

20240331_100703.jpg

Looking south along the valley with the granite forming a cliff at the top of the ridge. The remains of the tracking station can be seen in both these images.

My usual walk to the pub along a former railway line. Been postponed a few times this week by bad weather and a heavy head cold and cough :-( On the mend now though. Warm sunny day. One of the less happy sights today is the emergence of Japanese knotweed. This part of Wales is particularly badly infested with this highly invasive species. An ecological and economic pest.

Just across the road from the pub there are some bushes coming into fruit. What to call them? Mahonia? Berberis? Oregon grape? The accepted name keeps changing! :) An odd plant - flowers in midwinter and the fruits ripen in spring. Edible fruit but not really worth the effort in my opinion.

The iron daffodils are a popular decoration round here and a speciality of a local metalwork firm.

We escaped the craziness of the tourists here ( blossomseason) and drove to the north of this province for a walk in Pelt.
14k of the 15k were in the wood. Gorgeous and quiet.

I was in Rome for a week.
So many steps per dia!
And so many beautiful moments.
Mostly with people.
The eternal moments, wiki can tell you about them.
I met people.
Displaced people.
No photos. Just, only, awareness.
Why, oh, why?
Photos:
Anyway, in spite of all, a few photos. A pure gift of a week.
St Paul, stitched in a tapestry. Not a happy camper.
Something much older than Paul.
A lunch perch, having been one hour in the Catacomb of San Callistano.

Who were they, the early and mostly rich, Christians?
How determined they were!
No nonsense like we have today! They hoped. They believed...
And some wonderful alcachofas!
We cannot sustain our breathing at high moments. 😁

Mercer Bay loop track and then down to Karekare beach and Karekare falls. Of course walking down is mostly fine but then we need to walk back up. The highest point was 385 metres, lowest was 0 metres and cumulative was 683 metres.

I got a good workout this day!

This puts some of the comments about "steepness" at various places on the Camino Frances into perspective. This isn't even a technically difficult tramp (hike) in ANZ. Families walk this track and none of our group was under 70 and I am very much the youngest at 70.

Karekare used to be a little known treasure until Jane Campion decided to film The Piano there. The film won Palme d'Or (first female director), was nominated for 8 Academy Awards and won 3.


It is still reasonably quiet because of its remoteness but gets more visitors these days including an extended family from Arizona while we were there.

Quite apart from reading rumpled instead of rumped till my eyes looked again! your bird photos are always superb. I wonder what they are actually aware of, can they think? I could and will look it up!

I picked this article, so have the beginning of an answer...

In the pub waiting for my mixed grill to arrive. The ex-railway cycle path has a number of information boards. One points out an odd piece of local history. What is now a grassy field with sheep and lambs was once a large military camp set up in preparation for D-Day. The first paragraph of the English text made me laugh out loud. Bizarre but also believable. From the people who brought the world "Dad's Army" and "Whisky Galore!" :)

Earlier in the year we posted a photo of the sea wall at Teignmouth, Devon. (post #122) Visiting again today we walked around town and then towards the sea wall. This is the view looking back towards the pier with the Ness headland behind it and the coast at Torbay in the background. The River Teign comes out to sea at the Ness and the shipping channel can change with the tide. The dredger (near the centre of the photo) was working to keep it clear today. The harbour is behind the town and always needs a pilot for access. There have been a few occasions when a cargo ship has tried to enter without and been beached at the Teignmouth side , or scraped the rocks at the Ness side!

Then I headed down to the waterfront, an area that for me encapsulates the essence of Tamaki Makaurau Auckland.

I took more photos including more sunset shots but I am only allowed to post 10 at a time and so the rest will have to wait for another day.

PCT - Day 6 - Julian - Mile 77

So the first 6 days have taught me I can do this. Physically I have no complaints. I can see how the 1000 miles I did in Spain from Jan - March prepared my body well. I got my trail legs in like 3 days and I am seriously cruising.

But I am keeping to relatively short distances at the beginning to start slow for 2 reasons: 1) I don't want to risk injury by starting too hard 2) I am in no hurry to hit the snowy sierras.

I have met a couple of friends. People (including me) are starting to feel more comfortable and being more friendly.

A single photo today, and apologies for the fact that the sun was shining! The photo is of a plaque inside St James's Catholic church. I will look for more information, but you can see the first date top left. The current building is 19th century, but the abbeys of C10 and 11 included ministry to these areas.
The former Church of Ireland dedicated to St Patrick is now a tourist attraction. Wait a while and the current Catholic building could/ will fall to a similar fate. 😁
When I am volunteering in the Camino information centre, we often facilitate visitors from many countries who want to visit - Australians and New Zealanders, Canadians and other North Americans come to see where their forebears were baptised or married. Other nationalities come because they see an open door, or because they understand that such an imposing building has a meaning... Today, five grand men from Norway came, and let me just say that they gave a donation that would have given bed, evening meal and breakfast to the same number in a donativo on the CF...

...how peaceful it is on Romney Marsh. Flat lands, luminous sky, sea birds and gulls awakening the dawn...

20240417_160354.jpg

The other day I headed inland from Dymnchurch walking through the levels to an isolated 12th century church on Walland Marsh - the St Thomas á Becket church. It rests in pasture land, a wood and stone structure with Georgian pews and fittings...
20240417_161351.jpg

I walked for hours through furrowed earth and garish displays of rapeseed (Brassica napus) alongside drainage dykes frilled in delicate reeds. Misreading the OS map at times, I found myself stuck in a corner of a field without a plank to cross. The murky depths were too deep to plunge so I had to backtrack and start all over again on the other side...

Along the way I passed through the villages of St Mary-in-the-Marsh, had a pub lunch at Ivychurch and just missed out on scones with tea at the Brookland village fête.
