The hill of forgiveness
High up on the mountain is a string of wind turbines. You know you are in a windy spot when you see these graceful turning in the breeze. Or whirring like demons in the freezing rain and gale force winds. That’s what was happening as I made my way up there.
Alongside the turbines is a fabulous set off iron pilgrim statues. Stunning in any setting; here they had another eerie quality. The mountain is called Alto Del Perdon – the hill of forgiveness. Forgive me, it’s not a place to stop more than a moment.
Even though It’s a favourite photo stop along the Camino today… People hurried past. One pilgrim in his kilt! It feels like end of the world. I left a Martin Mallett name tag on the post. He’s there blowing in the wind.
