Today I slept in until 8am, read emails and the papers until 9, and then showered, washed clothes, sorted out my feet( again! I think they are improving slowly), and went for breakfast at the cafe across the bridge. I skyped Andrew and Sue; Tim must have been out. Their Wi Fi is great so I took the opportunity to download some pics.
John joined me at about 11am and we wandered around all day looking for places of interest that we never found. It's a lovely day and I think we walked around for 4 hours.
Tomorrow is only 21kms but we will need to be early to book into our Alburgue of choice. We stayed at El Alfar 2 years ago and it was great. It had a real family atmosphere and a nice communal meal for dinner. The next few days aren't too taxing and then we strike a couple of 30km+ days. I think the Camino becomes more enjoyable from here as the terrain changes and you are more used to the routine.
It feels a bit strange staying in a hotel but it's a nice treat before we hit the Meseta ( the
Spanish plains ) where it can be hot and flat with no shade for relief, and long gaps between villages.
Dinner tonight could be at a restaurant we had a bit of lunch in today. I would like to buy some breakfast to eat on the way as the 600gm U-bomb I am going to take will definitely need food on top of it. It's only 5 pm here to this is a nice early stop to the blog today, cheers !
