The Y” Memories – Walking down the Camino Memory Lane

How’s this for an original mailbox… therefore “You’ve got MAIL!” – There are so many original items that include shells… another very well known Camino symbol.

I have heard that in the old days (post the rediscovery of the remains of St. James) pilgrims used to have to walk not only to Santiago, but continue on (about 3 days walk) to Finisterre where  they could collect their shell from the ocean.

This served as another proof that they had walked the Camino, and to the end of the earth, as Finisterre was thought to be, back then. The shell can often by found attached to the pilgrim’s backpack.

The rest of the photos all fall under the title “Yummy Treats”… Feast your eyes on pastries, and pinchos (called tapas in the south of Spain).
