Crossed high, high bridges!!! (and I am afraid of heights)

Old Towns

We have walked through old, old towns…

Farm Animals

Here we are trying to get out of the way! Here come the cows, sheep and baby lambs!!! I will never eat lamb again!!! Look how cute they are!!!!!

Stones and Fields

Stepping on stones….and crossing fields…

Down, Down, Down

Down the mountain we go!

Sunrise

From the very top with the sun coming up!

Cold Mountain Water

Dipped my head in a fountain on the side of the road with cold, cold water running from the top of the mountain and hoping I will make it!

Through My Eyes

More of what I am seeing as I climb…

1/2 Way Up

Mid mountain, not happy and not sure I will make it. The marker says 152 km to Santiago…

The Knights Templar castle in Ponferrada.

The View

From the top of a mountain today.

The Iron Cross

This iron cross is the highest point on the Camino and every pilgrim places a rock from their hometown here. Adam and I placed our rocks today and I said a prayer for you, me, peace for our world and healing for the earth.

Cheers!

Here’s to you!! (not sure what this was)

Astorga

An angel in Astorga

Modern Monk

Me with a modern day monk who had a little cart with OJ, teas and cookies and such for the pilgrims.

Yellow Arrow

At one of the many crosses along the camino. The yellow arrow is how every pilgrim finds their way. I am sure I will be looking for them when I get back to Atlanta. The stones are placed by the pilgrims as markers that they were there.

Sunrise

The sun coming up outside Leon.

Storks

The huge nests of the storks!! We see them in every town we go! To hear a Stork clap his/her beak is AMAZING!!!

Hobbits

We found the Hobbits!!! They are actually houses that store wine but a few had TV antennas so I am not 100% sure Frodo and Sam aren’t living there!

12 Stages Left

With the star of the Templars…

Pilgrim Passports

Getting our Pilgrim Passports stamped at our new favorite bar! (we do this wherever we go as you must show this when you get to Santiago)

On Parade

This is the float that the cathedral uses for their parade. Pawleys Island SC would never be the same if I pulled up in this for their Annual 4th of July Parade – but oh! wouldn’t it be fun!!!!
