I look down from the albergue window as a lone, wet pilgrim shuffles down the dark street below. A-a-a-rgh!!
I am also dismayed by the bathroom situation this morning. Rule of albergue ettiquette: When sharing a bathroom with twenty-some people, do not spread out a whole trunk load of make-up and proceed to tie up the bathroom and sink for 40 minutes. Nobody cares what you look like on a wet, miserable day like today! End of rant…
Generally speaking, the stage goes along dirt tracks, with some stretches through secondary roads and also through paths parallel to the road. Yes, this must be Galicia because it is raining.
Not sure I’d want to push a stroller, with a little one, across northern Spain in the rain. …yet, he smiles.
Definitely a rain coat kind of day.
Meanwhile, we seek refuge from the elements in a cafe with hot coffee. Not many photos taken today due to the wet conditions. The rain did let up long enough for a short video:
These speedy hikers arrive early and find a window seat to enjoy the view of wet hikers strolling past them. It looks like Bryon’s new insoles are helping the blister situation.
Hooray! After about 18 kilometers, we arrive at our destination, O Pedrouzo, and check into Pension A Solaina.
One more day of hiking to go. Am I happy or forlorn? Both?
