This day couldn’t have been more beautiful – magical in fact – from the weather to the Camino.We started out with a heart pounding – lung squeezing steep climb.We walked through fern forests, up narrow traversing streets, across a Roman bridge where the Spaniards beat Napoleon, quiet suburban neighborhoods and up again over mosaic rock paths worned by Roman chariots – topped off with song birds and crystal clear rivers with trout and fouls gold sparkling in the sun.

We walked 27,714 steps and 11.76 miles into Pontevedra, Spain – famous for seafood and the birthplace of the Santa Maria – the largest of the three ships used by Christopher Columbus.
I’m really enjoying today’s walk. Bill how do you climb with flip flops? I’d be on my ass every 5 minutes
Just incredible – thank you again for sharing. And tell Bill his flip flops are the bomb!!! A man after my own heart.
I will tell him. Thanks!!!
