Another really long walk….. a long day following peaceful country roads, and then ~ lest we become too comfortable ~ what seemed like never-ending hills, and then once again through generally flat, wooded terrain. After yesterday’s long walk, everybody we met was dragging their butts. It was slightly cloudy, which kept the temperatures a little lower.
The terrain has definitely gotten less dramatic. Still really pretty rolling hills. Still plenty of cows (phew!), and churches. We were very happy to reach Casa da Ponte! Before we even took our showers we had some jamon, queso, and vino tinto. This is a darling place in the middle of nowhere. The only place to eat dinner is here at the “Casa”. We are looking forward to it!
Our walk tomorrow will only be about 13 miles, so we’ll sleep in for a change!
