      Olveiroa to Cee

      June 13, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

      Today was a good day. Walked with friends, we had a bit of sunshine, some rain. We stopped in a cafe for coffee, and later stopped at a picnic when a herd of cows followed a farmer and the dog (not a border collie....) and the wife through the picnic space. They seemed to have it all figured out, including the cows.

      We arrived in Cee which historically is a whaling town, and now it is a bustling seaside industrial and robust fishing centre. The first views of the sea were striking since I have nearly walked 900 km across the top of northern Spain from east to west, and the sight of water is striking. Yesterday, we saw a lake, and though we have seen a few rivers, by Canadian standards we might call them creeks, and today seeing that soon there will be no where left to walk was actually a bit alarming.

      Also noteworthy, this region is also famous for a werewolf. In the mid 15th century, in recorded documents, currently kept at a library in Paris, a group of 20 pilgrims were attacked and killed by a werewolf like creature. I have attached a picture of the creature. Kathy, Laurel and I did not encounter the werewolf on our travels, but a person is advised to not travel alone or at night.

      Well oddly enough, tomorrow is the end of the road...literally and figuratively for me. There is no where else to go, and since I can't walk on water, I will have to decide. And also finally after 900 km, my legs don't hurt, my feet are healed, my burn is nearly invisible, and my more recent spider bites appear to also be healing. Perhaps it is symbolic. All my physical challenges are healed, and so, therefore, all my spiritual and emotional challenges are also healed. I shall find out tomorrow when I reach "the end of the earth".

      Tag 52 von Fisterra nach Cee

      June 22, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Heute war es nur eine kurze Strecke von 14 km.
      Der Weg war wieder wunderschön was durch das gute Wetter und das Meer noch verstärkt wurde einfach umwerfend.
      Leider heißt es morgen Abschied nehmen vom Meer es geht zurück ins inland.
      Ja so langsam neigt sich mein Camino dem Ende zu was aber auch gut ist.
      Mir fehlt meine Familie schon sehr.
      Aber in einer Woche sehe ich sie wieder endlich!!!😃😃
      Auf der anderen Seite ist es aber auch schade das es nun doch so schnell ging.
      Ich kann es noch garnicht richtig begreifen das ich so weit gegangen bin.
      Es waren doch nur 15-30 km am Tag.

      Olveiroa - Cee (19,5km)

      July 25, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

      Raus aus der Stadt, rauf auf den Camino! Mit dem Bus flüchteten wir vom pulsierenden, reizüberflutenden Santiago nach Olveiroa und trafen einen Camino an, wie wir ihn von unseren Anfangstagen her kannten: beinahe menschenleer und deshalb so wunderschön.
      Auf geschotterten Höhenwegen liefen wir vorbei an Stausee und Windrädern, stärkten uns zwischendurch in einer abgelegenen Bar (O Casteliño, die einzige Bar auf fast 15 km!) und passierten einen wahrhaftigen Kraftort, die Capilla da Nosa Señora das Neves, mit einer von Pilgern errichteten Gedenkstätte.
      Und da war es endlich! Laut unserem Reiseführer noch berührender als der Anblick von Santiagos grandioser Kathedrale: das Meer! Wie eindrücklich diese Weite sein kann!
      Nach einem steilen Abstieg erreichten wir bald das kleine Küstenstädtchen Cee, wo wir heute in der schönen Pensión Beiramar nächtigen werden. Morgen bestreiten wir unsere allerletzte Etappe zum Kap Finisterre.

    • Day 37


      August 28, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Cee was larger than I expected. Being Sunday, there was a 'mercadillo' and we headed there thinking it was a food market, but it was a clothes market 🤷🏻‍♀️
      However, there were shops all around, including a confitería. We bought some cake and pastries, and took them with us to a place that served coffee.
      When I was almost finished with my morning tea, another German guy turned up. I saw him before. He started to speak in German with Jan, completely ignoring me. Even after I said hello, he didn't acknowledge me. I found him very rude. To top it off, he pulled out a cigarette. I was out of there before he could light it.
      No idea wtf was wrong with this guy, I didn't get that kind of attitude from anyone else in the whole trip.

      Last leg to Finisterre

      August 28, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Yesterday afternoon was so hot, I didn't want to get caught out again. So, this morning I started walking in the dark, on my own. I was the first one to leave the albergue.
      It was foggy, "I can see the air", I thought! I like the fog, it makes great pictures 🙂

      The landscape kept changing. There was a long stretch without any villages, and about halfway to the destination there was a town called Cee.
      After the first 7k or so, with some daylight already, I found a picnic area and stopped there for a self catered breakfast.
      Jan caught up with me about 4k before Cee. and we were keen to get there and go to a cafe.

      Day 39: Lagos a Cee

      June 7, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 19 °C

      On the way to the end of the world, and three days in.

      There is a different energy to this leg of the trip. Perhaps it is me, but there is a tiredness of the body and perhaps even the soul. I leave later, my muscles are more relaxed, a drink wine for longer and I rest for longer. The knowledge that I have reached Santiago, accomplished my goal, still sinks in as I drink coffee this morning.

      I wake up around 6.30 naturally, having had a good sleep with an actual duvet, I make my way down for a coffee. I am with a lovely group, there is a close familiarity they have shared that I feel I am slightly on the outside of today, so I drink some coffee and eat a little breakfast before heading off on my own today.

      It is a fellow pilgrims birthday, and I reflect on what that experience might be like to celebrate in the company of great Camino friends. I hope to see them at my final destination and enjoy a glass of wine to celebrate.

      I stop a few times on the way today, a coffee here and a coffee there. Everything feels almost dreamlike, a slow steadiness that is unlike the energy of the last week. A natural slowing as I move closer and closer to the sea.

      The walk today is peaceful and beautiful, the familiar look of the countryside is very evocative. With eucalyptus at either side of the path, and the smell of sea salt in the air, I really do feel as if I am walking home.

      I begin to make plans for when I return, I will cut my hair, I will start screen printing, I will start to sing again. I resolve that I will continue the journey I have started to enjoy myself and my life, living it to the fullest. As this chapter comes to a close somewhat, I know it is just another page in the story. I am in a reflective mood and walk mostly in silence, although I do meet Hodges along the way!

      I arrive in Cee, crossing over a hill to the first sight of the sea. It is absolutely beautiful, and just the look of it is refreshing. I know that I get closer to finisterre, and closer to Doniños by the day.

      At the hostel I share some of my fruit with a Dutch pilgrim, who tells me he is looking to make large life changes in his marriage and his job. It is amazing that I have grown comfortable talking with people about such personal and intimate things; I think the Camino teaches you that in many ways. We are all human, and we can support each other.

      I am invited to eat spaghetti with some Italians at the hostel, and there is a birthday dinner to celebrate also! I hope I can do both.

    • Day 44

      We walked the Camino

      June 30, 2022 in Spain ⋅ ⛅ 61 °F

      To see the world
      And what did we see
      A sea in Cee

      Actually it turned out that the body of water we kept on seeing is not really the Atlantic Ocean but rather the Ria Corcubion... but heck it still looked quie appealing.

      Our Peregrina strikes again bravely marching 22km including 2.5 km downslope from Cruceiro de Armada to Cee a 235m drop in elevation

      Please refer to maps included for our hike today
      Top map we started at A Ponte Olveira
      and continued on bottom map to Cee.

      Städtchen Cee

      October 29, 2023 in Spain ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

      Ich setzt mich kurz etwas an die Bucht… so schön am Meer zu sein… ist es nicht einfach schön das Meer!?
      Ich finde es ist halt einfach etwas spezielles, da wir in der Schweiz kein Meer haben…
      Fischerkörbe und ein Hauseingang voller Muscheln zeigen auch, ich bin am Meer

      Cee you later

      June 29, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

      Early start for our last day to Finisterre. Two gone by taxi again so we are just a group of five. What a treat to have a marching band practising ahead of an upcoming fiesta. But the added spectacle of a rainbow at the beach was a bigger treat.Read more

      Olveiroa-Cee (19km)

      April 21, 2023 in Spain ⋅ ☀️ 14 °C

      Heute früh habe ich einen kleinen Abstecher von der Route zu einer pilzförmigen Steinformation gemacht. Vorbei an einer Kuhherde ging es zu den Steinen und einem tollen Aussichtspunkt.
      Wieder zurück auf dem Camino holte mich der angekündigte Regen bald ein. Zweieinhalb Stunden später war ich nass bis auf die Knochen. Ich bin vom Weg abgebogen zu einer kleinen Kapelle und wollte mich dort unterstellen. Es gab dort einen Unterstand mit Bänken und zwei Menschen in einem Camper haben auf Spendenbasis Obst, Crepes und Kaffee für Pilger gemacht. Dieser Kaffee war einfach wunderbar. Vielen Dank an die lieben Menschen. Der Jakobsweg lässt einen nicht im Regen stehen.Read more
