Today was a day of nostalgia. Just about a year ago we walked this same stage.
It is nice to leave the extreme weather we experienced over the last few days. During the journey we had to deal with sharp ascents and descents, muddy conditions, and long stages. The final chapter was the unseasonable weather. Through it all we saw some great scenery and coastal views of beautiful Spain.
We had a 20 km walk today to Pedrouza. There was no rain in the forecast for the morning, so we decided to leave just before sunrise.
Pat was so happy to be back on the Camino Frances with so many other pilgrims, places to stop and drink coffee or visit with other pilgrims. That is one thing we had missed on the Camino del Norte. We saw more pilgrims this morning than our entire six week journey on Camino del Norte.
