It is amazing how you lose track of time! Every once in a while, one of us will ask the other, what is today’s date? or what day it is? After doing the Camino for over a month we have lost track of what is happening in the world. We think in terms of easy days or hard days and km covered. Just this morning I realized that the football games were played on Sunday and I had no clue who won or lost.
Our plan for today was an easy day to get 16 km so we can begin our most strenuous climb of the Camino tomorrow, well rested.
Last night as we went out for dinner we took a peak at the town of Villafranca. It is not only a pilgrim town but also a tourist town for the locals as there are more hotels than albergue’s in town.
Since we had a short day planned, every one decided on an extra hour of sleep. We left our Albergue at around 7:15.
Our path was along the river beside the old highway.
It was a simple but beautiful walk to our next village of Trabadelo which turned out to have a saw mill.
Breakfast there was simple.
Enjoyed some beautiful flowers along the way. Here is sampling of it.
Along the way I discovered the mystery of a walnut.
Does any one knows this tree? The blossoms remind us of something from Dr. Suess.
As we neared our destination we saw this marker.
We are settled in our Pension for tonight as we have an early morning departure for a longer day!
