37 • Granja de Moreruela

I waited until 08:30 this morning before setting out so as to give the group in the Albergue a chance to get ahead. It was 48°F, overcast and cold. The sun was able to make a brief appearance at sunrise, otherwise it was gray and cold the whole day until 15:30.

I had inspiration to ask Patrick, my brother, to see if he could find my entries for the Via de la Plata in 2014. I spent time last night re-reading my comments on this very section. What was amazing was that four years ago, yesterday, I was on the same road and also caught in a storm and soaking wet.
