We woke to a very misty morning with poor visibility but it wasn't long before it cleared. I looked at the guide book before leaving and discovered that the hotel we were staying at tonight was 5km further than the town of Siguiero which meant we would be walking over 33km today, about 17 or 18 miles.
A very unusual piece of garden furniture.
After about an hour's walking we passed a sculpture park by the side of the road with this giant statue of St James.
A scallop shell weathervane.
Potatoes form a major part of the diet in this part of Spain.
There were lots of people walking on the route today. Tina was taking a photo of Marie and Jonathan who were staying in the same hotels as us. We were usually ahead of them but would catch up with them for a chat in the evening.
We always met up with the same groups of people. There were many Spaniards on the route as well as Italian, Irish , German, Dutch and English nationalities.
The sun was finally showing its face so at this cafe we treated ourselves to an ice cream, a magnum to be precise.
We continued through the village passing this church with a gruesome 18th century statue of a child being martyred.
We didn't stop for long - just enough time for a sandwich, tea and toilet.
This brightly painted house stood out from the rest
Tempted but we stayed on the path.
Spotted a few people working the land by hand.
The route took us through a small park
Crossed the river to take us out of the town.
It was on a dual carriageway and required some speedy footwork to get across the road.
It was a lovely hotel and seemed to be run by one man. He did everything. Signed us in at reception, served us at the bar, cooked our evening meal and then served it!! It was the best meal we had eaten so far with Palma ham and melon to start, fish (hake, of course) and potatoes and almond cake for dessert. I had a gin and tonic afterwards and he must have poured a quarter of the bottle into my glass. I slept well that night.
