Here’s a short post to catch up.
The weather was OK and the walk quite pleasant – forest paths and country roads that go straight through little settlements. There are signs of commerce during the busy Camino season, but most are closed now.
Here is a truck full of new concrete marker cairns, being installed to make pilgrims on their way. I’m not sure what vehicle they use to get on the smaller paths.
Arrived in Sarria, which is an actual city. This is a common starting point for people who have just a week to walk. It qualifies for the 100 km distance that one must walk to get a compostela (the certificate issued by the Santiago cathedral).
I stayed in the Albergue O’Durminento, which was very nice, with 2 others in an 8-bed room.

I’m enjoying my ‘virtual’ Camino with you, without having to deal with what you have to put up with: fog, drizzle, cold, tired feet. Did you go through Samos and visit the Monastery?
No. I didn’t feel up to the extra distance and wasn’t sue what would be open in Samos. Someone I talked to did stay in the Albergue, which was a very impressive building. Nothing else was open but the woman in the house next door made him dinner.
Thanks for continuing to share your journey. Some of those pictures remind me of the west coast with the ferns and moss. It looks like the perfect weather for walking, to me.
I’ve been lucky with the weather. But the weekend is forecast to be wet and cold. Yes the greenery is very Pacific northwest-ish.
