Camino de Santiago – Otra Vez

As you might recall, the first time around Piglet allowed herself to be carried along the Camino de Santiago from St Jean Pied de Port to Logroño. It’s all discussed here: St Jean Pied de Port

So, for the next leg of the Camino Piglet wanted to travel in a little more style – in a bicycle trailer. So she did.

This is the front door of our friend Santiago’s apartment; it’s right on the Camino in downtown Logroño. This is where we finished up the first leg of 200 km.

The Look Book

Riu has taken to modelling the next latest baby fashions. A busy day on shoot involved no less than five costume changes, but this hard-working heroine doesn’t get out of bed for anything less.

Here’s a snapshot of the little lady arriving on set with her daddy, so proud to see his little girl off on her first day of work.

Someone Call Stacey!

Help! Let me free! Someone call Stacey and Social Services. I deserve freedom too.  I’m helpless in this cage. Can you believe my own father built it with his own hands?

An Instrument of Torture!

Estadi Olímpic de Montjuïc

On Sunday Piglet went to the stadium where the Barcelona Olympics were held in 1992.

Rolling in style these days. This was the last preparation for the Camino de Santiago. The team leaves on Thursday.

Cage Rage

The little Piglet’s pig pen is getting too little for her. She’s not shy about expressing her need for a bed more becoming her size. So far, though, she hasn’t managed to escape.

Some nights a little arm can be found sticking out through the bars, sometimes a tiny leg, right up to the ham.

Art Appreciation

Little critic inspects Jim’s Christmas present from Rebecca.

The original painting is from the Encants second-hand market, with the origami birds added by Rebecca. They are taking flight towards their flock (unseen off in the sky on the right).

Sant Cugat and the Volta Catalunya

Training for the camino continues apace. This Sunday, on her second attempt, Piglet made it up and over Tibidabo and down the other side into Sant Cugat.

On the downhill section into Sant Cugat we were unintentionally on the course of the third-oldest cycling race in the world – the Volta Catalunya. We were informed of this by a motorcycle policeman who was telling us to get off the road.

So, for a brief period, Piglet in her chariot was ahead of the peloton, leading the 101st Volta.

Piglet as the peloton whizzes by…

Where did they all go?

They went to Sant Cugat, and so did we. We stopped for lunch at the monastery; they didn’t.

Then we turned around and cycled back up and over Tibidabo, pausing only to visit a playground for Piglet’s first time on a horse:

She loved the swing, which more than made up for being disqualified from the cycling race.

Piglet loves you all, she wanted me to convey that.
