What an exquisite day!
We headed out into the misty morning, following forest tracks for most our nearly 15 km walk.
Dewy spiderwebs looked like crystal mandalas decorating the sides of the road. And huge hydrangeas – bigger than our heads – added splashes of colour to the roadside.
We walked steadily, slightly separately, each with our own thoughts and pace, coming together at intersections and interesting sites.
We stopped once for frothy coffee con leche, and again later to sit at A Santiña or St Margaret’s Fonte, a modern fountain rebuilt on the site of a historic one that is said to be good for healing sore throats.
We continue to enjoy the signs of harvest as we walk through the Gallician countryside and love the raised granaries that are such a part of the culture.
My feet are beginning to feel a little worse for the wear, but I am determined to walk the last 17 kilometres to Santiago tomorrow. We are nearly there!
