Pam and I had a Pilgrim dinner last night. She was still not feeling well so she went back to the albergue before dessert.
It was raining this morning when we got up at about 7. I put on all of my rain gear, but just like when I was walking with David every time I put all my rain pants and jacket, the rain turned to a drizzle and stops.
Today’s walk was about 14 km. it was a very pleasant walk. When we arrived Oncina, there was a man with fruit and other food for a donation. He actually made fresh orange juice for me.
Then we stopped in Chozas de Abajo for breakfast. I had a tortilla which I don’t know if I am spelling correctly, but is actually a potato/egg dish. Then I had my favorite Magnun double chocolate ice-cream bar. Yes, ice-cream for breakfast.
I have found a great use for my extra shoelace, which I almost didn’t bring. It is now my belt – holding up my pants.
We have found a great Albergue, (Albergue de San Antonio). They are going to make a vegetarian dinner tonight, but it will be at 7.
I went out to the local market for some snacks.
All the churches seem to have stork nests on the top. Too bad it is not stork season.
I love all the pilgrim sculptures. Here is another one.
On the way back from the market I checked out the other Albergues. Ours is a few Euros more, but well worth it.
I ran into the three guys who were helping me with my Spanish last night.

Go, girl, go. I am so tempted to”do” the Camino after reading all your blogs, but reality set in (thank god). Keep those stories coming – I’m just loving it. Ann
