Combing the beach for concha shells

From the phonecam of el Peregrino

One of the tradition for a pilgrim on the camino in the old days is to find

your own shell to bring back in order to prove that you have been to the

sea. Here in Finisterre, the St. James' shell is hard to find as many

pilgrims are doing the same thing along the beach.
