49 • Casal Rural

For every step down yesterday afternoon, this morning demanded a step up eventually the Camino returned to her old self of oak, pine, and eucalyptus forests. The mist cleared the sun came out but was very little warmth, the walk had a ‘post storm’ quietness to it, fragrant with pine and eucalyptus.

I decided not to rush to Santiago but to take it easy

Not a long walk today but slow due to the climb and muddy path after the rain. Just arrived, need to do washing in accordance with the tradition of clean clothes for the arrival in Santiago and then off to find lunch.
