Lady roasting peppers and later canning for the winter.
Walking through vineyards outside of Ponferrada. Reminded me of the Okanagan in BC
I have to credit Grace with all of these photos – thanks Sis xo
Wine tasting along The Way. It’s a tough life being a pilgrim
This turned out to be Joe’s daily routine – find a river to cool off the feet!
A carving into the rock face out the back of a fab albergue we stayed in, in Ruitelan. Louis and Carlos the owners were such a neat couple, really homey place.
We met some great people along the way including two girls from Boston, Maria and Nancy. All I can say is, they sure can party!
The next few photos give you an idea of the gorgeous food we have been eating. As I said, this pilgrim life is tough!
Lentil soup – yum
Mixta salad – available everywhere. The tomatoes are the sweetest you have ever tasted ….. Except maybe from my yard
One of the pilgrim meals we signed up for. They cost under €10 and are usually three or four courses, including wine.
Scallops at Portomarin at the Mirador Restaurant
Plate of pimentos – an odd time there might be a rogue hot one or two on the plate that would bring tears to your eyes. Great for the sinuses 🙂
I am realising his walk has a serious food theme! My fav dish in this photo is the salted cod stuffed peppers with squid ink sauce – to die for!
Finola, Grace and I drenched wet after a hard slog in pouring rain, arriving into O Pedrouso, knowing we were just 20km from Santiago de Compestella.
Our arrival in Santiago – woo hoo! The early morning rain stopped as we walked into the city thankfully. Grace has now covered 500km while Finola and I have covered just under 120km. We definitely felt like importers in comparison to Grace. Well done to Grace on completing her walk to celebrate her 50th year!
