Spiritual Variant

We had no idea how many pilgrims would take the central path to Santiago and how many would take the spiritual variant. The first 2 km out of Pontevedra are the same route for both paths, and we saw hundreds of pilgrims leaving Pontevedra this morning on the shared path. Once we branched off onto the variant, we probably saw only seven pilgrims the rest of today. Talk about the road less traveled!

It was a bit hilly but gorgeous the rest of the way.

Along the way we came across the Monastery do Poi and decided to take the tour inside.

The last few days we had been moving inland, so the last thing we expected was to be at the shore, but that is where we ended up at the end of the day. Wonderful cool breeze, sunshine, and great coastal view.
