end of the line

Monday 9th July - this Spanish holiday write up is coming along slowly and it's lovely to delve back into my journal and photos as the nights darken and the air starts to feel autumnal.

So - here we go
Another shipping forecast conquest and the most westerly point in Spain too!
Cape Finisterre (Spanish) or Cabo Fisterra (Galician).  'Finis' 'terre' - the end of the land.
And also the end of the Camino de Santiago now that it has extended to the sea.
Tradition has it that the pilgrims leave their boots here
and little items of meaning

and this is the pretty little port of Fisterra, back down off the headland.

Fabulous day then back for a feast at Casa De Lema
