Pics Part 3 – including Dale’s accident

It sure is hard going back through the pictures. I want to be on the Camino. Sounds kinda dumb but the Camino gave you a purpose. Put the pack on and make it to the next village. It was something good to look forward to everyday. Pictures below take you from the sunflower fields outside Cizur Menor to Dale’s accident and stitches in Cirauqui.

We really enjoy reading the comments many of you have left us.

Lunch at the Posada de Ardogi, our albergue for the night. The pizza in Spain does not compare to our pizza but sure is good with a cold beer after a long hot walk.

La Posada de Ardogi. When we arrived Hank (Lynda #1) had checked in earlier and said he thought a friend of ours was here. It's Peggy!! Funny how with miles in between we keep running into each other.

Dale at the doctor's office after 3 stitches and lots of abrasions. Cirauqui is where he tripped and hit a solid stone bench. 2 hours at the doctor's office, cleaning and stitches, extra dressings to take with and the cost was ZERO!!

Right at the edge of the shadow in picture is a curb. The one Dale didn't see and tripped over as he was looking up at the arches.

  1. Beautiful pictures alot of these you need to frame. When you got to Alto de Perdon you must have felt like WOW !!! we are actually here, I remember that place from the movie ” The Way “. I love the picture of Dale approaching the town of Cirauquin !!. Now as far as pictures you should have framed——The one of Dale laid out on the Dr. table is a must !! I also like the group shot of the Pilgrims that stopped to help you guys, the look on Dale’s face is priceless, like Who are you and where are we, ha ha ha ha. Hey your next group of pick’s say the temperature of the places. GREAT PICTURES
