Camino de Santiago 2016

Every single one of us possesses the strength to attempt something he isn't sure he can accomplish. It can be running a mile, or a 10 k race, or 100 miles. It can be changing a career, losing 5 lbs., or telling someone you love her (or him).
-- Scott Jurek

Old age is the time to be dangerous. Dangerously fun loving, dangerously alive . . . This is the time to do every single thing we can possibly do with all the life we can bring to it. This is the time to live with an edge, with strength, with abandon. There is nothing for which to save our energy. Now it is simply time to spend time well.
-- Joan Chittister

May 27

When the sun finally comes out it is glorious. It seems as if each village is perched on a hill. The push up is often rewarded with a bar where one can get a cafe con leche and rest the feet - and the back.

Grapes here are not staked, but trimmed back to their ancient trunks. Last year's vines are gathered and used as firewood.

Red poppies are everywhere, even in the wheat fields.

The city of Estella is on the rio Ega.
