The steeples of El Santuario de la Virgen da Barca (The Sanctuary of our Virgin of the Sea), at Punta da Barca ou de Xavina near Múxia just past sunset, as the fishing fleet heads out to sea.
This is the Faro de Cabo Vilán. It was a great start to another great day of hiking.
From the end of our second day on the Camino dos Faros, this photo shows carved granite crucifixes that stand at the lighthouse Punta de Roncudo. The 20 minutes that we were able to spend here before darkness fell were absolutely breathtaking.
The oldest operating lighthouse in the world, this is el Torre de Hércules (the Tower of Hercules). Standing on a bluff extending from the city of A Coruña, this working monument served as the starting point for our adventures on the northwest coast of Spain.
This entry briefly describes our hike from Palas de Rei to Melide (pronounced, “Melid-e”), and it shows photos we took of some sights along the way.
My wife, Patty, recently asked me if I would be one of the photographers for this year’s Wakefield Chapel Recreation Association (WCRA) Youth Triathlon, on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Our kids are grown, but I always enjoy encouraging kids in athletics whenever I can. And besides, this is our pool, and the running course would be right on our street!
