Leon was without question our best rest stop and sightseeing town. We had plenty of time to explore and rest up for our last 3 weeks. We saw this marker in Leon and were excited and disappointed at the same time. Excited at what we have accomplished and disappointed that it will end in few weeks.
The group was ready in the morning and we met at the cathedral at 6:20 to begin our 22 km walk. We decided to take the scenic route which adds extra 5 km over two days but avoids the route next to highway.
We walked through the city streets for about 6 km and then we were back in our first village having our early morning breakfast.
Our new team was doing well. We all felt we were back in our grove with all of our aches and pains.
We even had time to enjoy the play ground (thanks to the abundance of young energy).
We made it to our Albergue before 1. We were able to enjoy a nice lunch together. Stephanie, Emily, and Noah are all doing well but also are a bit sore and using the afternoon resting like the rest of us.
Tomorrow we head toward Astorga (part of the way). We have another day or so of Meseta and then we will be out of flats and into mountains again!.
You all look so happy to be in the final stretch! And Enayet Uncle, I like your picture on the swing with no hands. Enjoy your last few short weeks on the Camino!
You all look so joyful! Pat Auntie, your hair looks fabulous. I am sure you are all looking forward to the mountains.
It’s going too fast!
