“It is the sweet, simple things in life which are the real ones after all.” – Laura Ingalls Wilder
In my in box today I found this saying and I thought this would be perfect beginning for my blog.
This is what awaited us outside our albergue when we woke up.
Town of Deba rests along the rio Deba as it merges into the ocean. From Deba, the next major stop is 22 km over collado de Arno (500 meter climb). After 4 straight days we needed a day of rest. We decided to make today a leisurely day. The van brought us back to Deba, where we acquired our food supply for the next day and headed to a private albergue some 7 km on the path.
Here are some pictures from yesterday that I could not load due to very slow internet.
Yesterday we stopped for lunch around 2 when the rain stopped for a bit. We were happy to shed our backpacks while we had our picnic. I noticed these acrobatic snails in the bushes and realized I should not complain about my backpack as they were carrying their whole bedroom with them.
