The very top of the altar. The symbol that was mentioned in a David Browne book.
Pilgrims lining up for supper. So did I. We did not have wine, only bread. But the minister had wine. Strange.

At Faro de Muxia. Soaking rain and strong waves. Glad I was in a bus on not on foot.

Faro de Muxia. Something about this stone being named "the vessel of Santa Maria"

And this is boat of the vessel of Saint Maria. If you can move it, you are innocent. Nobody can.
This is a symbol - as far as I remember - to commemorate the cleaing up of one of worst oil spill disasters in the world
