Day 3 on the Camino was just as magical as Day 2. I wish that I had taken more photos. We walked, we talked, we ate, we jumped in a stream…

I was shy about asking my new friends to stop so that I could take pictures, hence the blur.

I loved the doors, walls, and windows I saw along the Way

Day 3: old stone wall and window

 

 

Another beautiful ancient wall. In hindsight, I would have taken many, many more pictures, especially of my new friends.

    I love these! As you know, I didn’t bring a camera on my Camino, so I appreciate seeing the experience through others’ eyes. I love your photography and your eye for magic. The cats are my favorite!

      I love the kitties too, Jen. One of these days I’ll put together a post called, “Cats on the Camino.” And dedicate it to Little Boy and Sassafras!

      Glad you like the pics…it’s about time I posted all of them from the trip, with or without narrative.

    I love these pictures! Especially the cats and the doors – you have a really good eye for details. I’m starting my Camino in Roncesvalles so this entry is of particular interest to me. So exciting! I’ll be there on April 8!
