A breezy and peachy day

After a long day yesterday every one was in the mood for a shorter day but the best we could do in terms of towns and Albergue was to plan for Villafranca. It added up to 25 km, another long day but mostly flat day.

We left at 6:40 in the morning along the scenic path of town. Ponfarada turned out to be much larger than we imagined taking almost 3 km to get out of town.

It was nice to get into smaller and more frequent towns. One thing we noticed is how prosperous these towns are compared to the ones in Meseta. The most special thing was the wonderful sweet breeze that was blowing all day.

After breakfast we were back again in the wine country with tons of fruit trees. We decided to pick few fruits like peaches and pears.

As you can see in the above picture, we have less than 200 km to Santiago. We are 3/4 of the way done and are feeling it our feet. Since we had a reservation for a good Albergue, we decided to have a nice sit down lunch before continuing on.
