weekly photo challenge: fresh

Posted on

We experienced plenty of “fresh” moments on the Camino; freshly squeezed orange juice, fresh morning dew, fresh morning air and fresh faces!

Our interpretation of fresh for the challenge this week: fresh rain water flowing along the path.


This was our second last day on the Camino and we were faced with horrendous rain. In some parts, we were wading through ankle deep water.

By the end of the day, we emptied about half a cup of water from our shoes and could wring water from our socks.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

Please feel free to leave us your thoughts.

    Nothing fresher than rainwater or an ice cold clear mountain stream newly emerged from a spring.

      It’s actually interesting how when we think of fresh water, we personally think clean but in fact they are different! This picture was definitely fresh water and definitely not clean πŸ™‚
      Curt, we hope you had a wonderful weekend!

        Mountain streams are crystal clean unless a storm has riled things up. For years I carried a simple cup and would dip water out to drink when backpacking through wilderness areas. The, along came Giardia, sigh. –Curt

            The women used to claim that having to pump water built up their pectoral muscles, however. (grin)

      HAHAHA – no freshness on the feet at all. More like soggy and uncomfortable πŸ˜‰

    Ah, throwback to your Camino trip. The memories must be gushing back to the two of you right now! Great shot, the water actually looks clear…but I don’t know for sure if the river is that clean, you never know πŸ˜€ Hope autumn is treating the two of you great. It’s starting to cool down here in Melbourne, oh no!

      Hello Mabel! We were in Berry for a wedding over the weekend and it certainly is getting cooler.

      We love your “pun” about the memories “gushing back” – a very fitting choice of word πŸ˜‰ And you are right, the water may be fresh but NOT clean!

      The Camino will never be far from our minds… we have been talking about going back to walk a different route. We’ll see…

      Have a great weekend ahead!

        I really did not notice the word “gushing” matched so well with your photo. You are sharp to spot it…this monkey over here is tired πŸ˜€ Have a good week guys and talk soon πŸ™‚
