Traveling Nancy

Traveling around the world as far as I can go.

Olveiroa to Cee

3 Comments

Over the last couple of days I have been wondering why after all these kilometers of walking do my legs and lungs still complain to me when we are going up hills? Of course we make it, but I would think that by now it would be easier.
View of our Albergue room last night as we tried to dry out.

Drying our clothes in the albergue in Olveira.
After getting our clothes dry last night and taking the newspaper out of our almost dry boots, we took off again in the rain. It was not as torrential as yesterday for most of the day. But the paths were clearly wet in several places.

Maureen and Mary were waiting in the shelter on way to Cee.
Tricky negotiating where to step.

Walking through the wet path to Cee.
We crossed this part by holding on to the fence and stepping on the broken pieces of log near the fence.

We needed to use the log to get across the wet path on the way to Cee
Today’s walk was suppose to have a view of the Atlantic, but that was not easy to get. And both the downhills and uphills were pretty tricky.

It was tricky on the wet hills going to Cee.
It sure looked like we had a long way to go.

Going to Cee

We finally caught a glimpse of the water.

This was our first site of Atlantic on way to Cee.
And made it to Cee. What a great greeting from the hospitalario at Albergue de Casa de Fonte when he told us to take our shower first and then sign-in. He also gave us real sheets for our beds. They are so much better than the paper ones. Then he dried our clothes. Our boots are stuffed with newspaper. We have had a great dinner at the local restaurant. We have done our last hike that is over 18 km. I think the last 3 are under 15 each. Finisterre tomorrow.

Traveling has been a passion of Nancy Panitch's life and she loves seeing how people in other cultures live. Her travels have taken her to many places within the United States, Asia, Europe, South America, and Africa. Being around people inspires her and she has much gratitude for the kindred Souls that are joining together with her in body, mind, and heart. She moved from Chicago to Portland, Oregon in 1982. It was one of the best decisions of her life. While in Portland she stays very, VERY busy. She volunteers (Inter-Religious Action Network, Human Rights Council, & ushering for various theaters); attends a Unitarian Universalist church; goes hiking with groups (Cascade Prime Timers & Trails Club of Oregon) and also with individual friends. Book groups, movie group, and bridge groups occupy her time as well. Her quiet activities include yoga, knitting, Sudoku, and reading. She enjoys all of these activities, but making time to see her wonderful 4 grandchildren takes priority over it all. She is happy to share this blog and hopes to encourage others to travel.
