Day 31 – 16.45 miles
Cocktails and a sleeping pill induced coma really rejuvenated us.
Good day today. Lots of hills to keep it interesting.
The newbies from Sarria were all chatty and having a splendid time although starting to show signs of discomfort.
All of us who have been walking more than 30 days are quieter – focused.
2 more days!!!
Day 30 – 17.70 miles
I had a tough day – pain in my feet and ankles all day. Bill was a champ as alway.
Fog until noon – sunny an warm afterwards.
Stumbled on the perfect Albergue in San Xustain – story book!
Sitting at a table – books in hand – gin and tonic – surrounded by flowers – unusual for this time of year says the bar tender – should be freezing at night.
A cow herder came through with 7 cows soon after 3 men on horse back momentarily followed by chickens and a rooster!
3 more days!!!
A loopy punch drunk Peregrino stole my phone and wrote yesterday’s blog. Sorry!
Day 29 – 13.33 miles
A person must walk the last 100 kilometers of the Camino to obtain a certification of completion. Last night we stayed in Sarria – just outside the 100 kilometer mark.
At breakfast this morning all we saw were sparkling new hiking boots and Peregrinos dressed like ski bunnies.
The Camino was full.
If anyone can identify the type of tree in the close up below, please let us know.
4 more days!!!
