I left the Albergue at about 6:45 and found my way through town pre-dawn. How lovely to come across the bridge with the reflection in the water.
Soon I caught up with John and Helene, new friends from Albany who I met on the last Portlandia American Pilgrim stroll in Portland the day before I left. They had soaked their feet in the water under the bridge.
I only walked 16.5 km today but I was thoroughly ready to stop when I arrived at La Casa Magica by about 1:15. There were no more steps in my body. It is magical place indeed. Simone called a taxi for me to go to the post office in Estella and I retrieved my sun glasses. Then I did laundry and relaxed for the rest of the afternoon.
I am looking forward to my fish dinner with about 19 other pilgrims.
