Santiago de Compostela

I returned home from Spain two weeks ago. It has not been easy to assimilate back into life here after my amazing journey. The Camino occupies a great deal of my thoughts and I find I terribly miss being a walker/sketcher/pilgrim...
My accordion sketch book of the plaza in Santiago finally got colored in after sadly sitting unopened until today. What great memory of going from window to window of the Parador Hotel sketching this beautiful scene.
Gracias nuevo España. Realmente fue un buen Camino.

Muchas gracias Spain

The sun was out with bright blue skies for our last morning in Santiago. We had a couple of hours to kill before our long trip home so I went in search of my last café con leche. Almost as much as the café con leche, I love the cup and saucer and the little spoon. Sadly, I left my last red lipstick mark on my last cup in Spain.
Muchas gracias Spain. It truly was a “Buen Camino”
(In case you are thinking “that is just so tacky”…I always wipe it off before I leave)
