After a rest day we set off from our Hotel Roque with everyone else for what Ba described as a mostly ‘uphill day’!
Every available space is used by Spanish gardeners for growing both vegetables and ornamentals making for spectacular displays.
Starting the climb.
A metal pilgrim points the direction for walkers to ‘the way’.
On the way.
An extremely large but slow moving slug. Will it get across the road alive and in one piece?
Loggers at work with e.grandis – and not a gteenie on sight! Spaniards consider them exotics and plant them for paper making and firewood.
A local church with its above ground burial sites/casket
Highly coloured corn storage containers nearby original domestic wells.
A beautiful view of todays path through the woods.
An British flag inscription on an exterior wall of a rural Spanish house along the way.
The Camino Ingles.
Bill – a new horse whisperer?
There are many donkeys in Spain but we are unsure what their role is/was.
After a cafe and bar free day we enjoyed Julia’s bar at 4pm with its cool beers and bowls of ‘monkey peanuts’ for our late lunch.
Some of us with blistered feet or sore legs took a taxi onto the pension while 5 continued the walk in.
Helen’s feet needed some nursing interventions and ended up looking like this!
The walkers eventually returned – albeit frozen. Bill needed a little coffee with his whiskey to warm himself up!!
Dinner tonight – before everyone arrived.
Dinner for 10 included ham, salad, onion tart, tortilla and bread. It was all just delicious after a big day walking.
