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

Day 28 Fonfria to Sarria

This was to be a tough day. 17 miles and more than 3,000' down on rocky trails. 
The famous moon - first summer solstice moon since 1948, year I was born. 
The first five miles were high up and the views were incredible. 


The round stone building demonstrates one of the Celtic influences of this region. Rounded stone buildings, rock walls, thatched roofs and bagpipe music all are found in Galecia. 

The dirty side of the Camino. In many hamlets the age old way of living is two story houses with livestock below and people on second story. Each day the cows walk out to pasture along the Camino. The way is often covered with cow droppings. And flies.
