15 miles today. Cold morning – had to stop and add clothes – by mid afternoon the sun was warm – especially climbing hills.
The first hostel we stumbled on was on the top/3rd floor of an old church. Beautiful! However, the sleeping room was in a loft area with 30 mats on the floor. Not! A German Public TV crew was there making a documentary about the Camino (of course they pick the only hostel without beds to show how we struggle along the way).
The only other option was a hippiefied hostel. Donations only. Basic and painted by someone on quaaludes. They have beds. We will rest our heads there.
Does “donations” mean sorry about the bed bugs???
Dove hunting must have opened today (the weather felt just like home). The shotgun fire was brisk and we saw game wardens driving through the hills.
We ran into the Cruz Roja (the Red Cross) – they gave me a shirt and thanked me for volunteering.
I learned today that I can walk and make things at the same time – the crosses on the fence inspired me to make another…..
Tomorrow we walk uphill the whole day! Hello calves….
