Camino de Santiago Portugues Day 9

It poured and poured for hours.  Our rain gear wasn’t a match – we were soaked to the bone.

The good news – today was the most beautiful of the Camino so far. Rolling hills with old stone buildings, rich dark brown tilled farmland, freshly sprouted corn rows and heavy with the smell of manure.

Since we managed to stay on the correct Camino today – we finally met up with other Pilgrims. All die hards. The walk continues in rain or shine.

The sun starting peaking out just about an hour or two before we got to our final destination of Barcelos. Our clothes dried but the shoes are still sloppy.

43,103 steps and 18.47 miles.

About Paige Shaw

Hi! I'm Paige - a freelance travel photographer. Let's go on a photo journey across the globe. The aim of my work it to show you the many layers and exquisite textures of a locality; its character, culture, people and beauty. Bitten by the wanderlust bug years ago my husband Bill and I set out to see the world. 2013 gave birth to a travel blog (www.billandpaige.com) chronicling our journeys so that curious family and friends could follow in real time. From that beginning so too a photographer was born. Honing my skills over the years I am now excited to narrate our discoveries with imagery! As you glimpse my art - join as we explore together. Be sure to throw your fashion ego out the door cuz there's no room in the carry-on luggage. Sunrise shots start at 5am. Hiking to the top for a different perspective will definitely get your blood pumping and you might even need to role up your pant legs to capture those closeups on the water…. Most of all - get ready to SMILE - it's the universal language. I’m also a wife, mother, yogi, pilgrim, burner, golfer, skier, scuba diver and expert wanderluster. “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso

      We have no idea what we did wrong. There was one yellow arrow after another. I think we ultimately would have ended up in Braga. We walked the Camino Frances for 800 kilometers and had better luck! It all makes for good memories!
