Days 8 & 9

14 miles on day 8 and 15.25 miles today. We have completed a little over 25% of the Camino.

Tonight we will sleep in our 71st bed since we left May 1st.

Yesterday we walked past a 1/3 mile of chain link fence full of crosses made by Pilgrims using sticks, grasses, socks etc. It evoked a strong, immediate response – one of joy, sadness, accomplishment and a reason for the Camino. We both added to the approx. 10,000 crosses already there.

Every night we have a Basque Pilgrim’s (peregrino) dinner – 3 courses – wine, bread and water included.
