Amigos - I am off for a few days exploring a place called Wittam. I thought I'd leave you with this question:

On which route do the arrows take you here and where is it?

I am certain that this is really a trick question and that this is a beach here in New Zealand, so just send me the Johnnie Walker now :p

Do I guess right here in public, or do I send you the answer via email or PM? I think I recognize this place... ´cept it was pouring rain when I was there!

I've also seen this place - but not for real - only in cyber space as a post on a blog.

I think I may have sat here last November and had a beer, and also again last March when I went back with my husband. Again another beer, both times it was sunny. I also picked up quite a few shells so I have my scallop shell ready for my next camino whenever that may be.

Johnnie: As a Camino Head, I hereby recuse myself from this easy-peasy beach-ID contest.

But I´ll see your Scotch, and raise you a bottle of homemade orujo de hierbas: First to ID this camino and where it is can claim the booze at his/her leisure:

Dear Rebekah,
My guess is the Camino Portuguese between Ponte de Lima and Rubiaes (sp?)

Am I getting warm?

The mist reminds me very much of the day I had crossing the Montes de Oca. But I don't think there were any of these nice stone walls there. Mind you it was so misty I might have missed them....

Hi Rebekah,
The walls say, 'Galicia". Am I in the right province? :lol:
Buen Camino,

You Go Deirdre! Galicia it is. Which really isn´t much help, as so many trails go there!

(I thought of you today, when I went with a fellow hermit girl to That Place in Oviedo!)
We now have sleeping room for THREE MORE pilgrims!

OK OK - sorry about the delay. I just got back.

Thanks for all of your replies, public and private.

It is indeed on the Camino Ingles in Cabanas, just short of the bridge into Pontedeume.

Sil, you'll be swimming there soon :)

...and my photo was taken between Miraz and Sobraado de Los Monxes, on the Camino del Norte.
(Hope you liked Wittam, Johnnie. Wherever that is.)

No winners! But I kinda like this game! Anyone else have a puzzler pic?

Great photo, Omar!

Well, it's definitely the meseta...probably Castilla y León...and definitely NOT morning (no long shadow! ) :wink: I'll let someone else play to try to pinpoint it!

William's on the right 'track'

I think it might be between Santiponce and Guillena.....
I remember just how zen the track was between these two places....and I also remember having to wade up to my chest in flood water...about 5 km south of Guillena.
Just the perfect start to a month's pilgrimage

I don't think that would be fair...for you to supply the prizes.Perhaps those posting the photos could specify whether they are offering prizes. Speaking for myself I think it's good fun with or without a prize

Or rather, don't win a bottle......

I can't post pics , so here's a question which should be easy :wink:

Where exactly can you find the inscription "Errantes Revoco"?
What does it mean? :D
Why did it matter to pilgrims?

At La Dômerie d'Aubrac on the Bell of the Lost.
The inscription means something like Wanderers, Return... or Wanderers, Come back.

Muchas gracias!

Well. Been there, done that, would never have got the answer!!! I have special memories of the towers of the Domerie at Aubrac: they suddenly seemed to loom out of the mist I had been walking in. But the weather was so awful at the time, I never hung around to sight-see for inscriptions. Instead I fell gratefully into the warmth of a nearby restaurant, where a zillion other pilgrims were already gathered.
A few days later I met a couple who had walked on Aubrac the day after me. They never even saw any towers. The mist was so thick they could barely see their noses in front of them, and it was snowing. So I quite understand why they needed Bells for the Lost.

Well Kiwi, you had the luck to experience hundreds of years of history in that mist- if only they'd rung the bells. I love the connection between our contemporary camino, and that of the people of the past. I get a buzz out of that.

Yes, I must say, it felt incredibly medieval to see the towers in the mist like that- possibly my most 'medieval' moment of the whole Camino.

And I am going to have a go at the other question. Maybe it is Estaing. I know that The chateau there is being renovated by Gustav d'Estaing or whatever his name properly is. I was told he was a descendant of the actual family connected with that chateau over the centuries, and that he was restoring it for the 'patrimonie' of France, not just for his own use.

I "know" Estaing. It was the town I had a rest day in to recover from my blisters! I sat in the sunshine by the river watching the world go by....

I probably would never have found that out if I hadn't decided I needed a 'rest day'. We tortoises have more time to :D learn some things sometimes! :D
