I felt out of sorts today – combination of general tiredness, weird group dynamics, a baby toe that feels like ground meat, and most important – no café con leche to get the day properly started.
We were all driven to the Arco de Cáparra to resume the Vía de la Plata.
This is a stretch that has a few streams/rivers that can be problematic. No problem today. In one case the centre concrete block had been swept downstream, leaving a space that was just TOO far for anyone to step. Some stones and rubble had been assembled, but it wouldn’t be enough in higher water!
After a few km when I still didn’t perk up, I decided I needed a short day with time off and a rest. I detoured to Hostal Asturias for a private room (€19 for pilgrims). It was a good decision. It would have been even better if I had planned it, and then I’d have stayed at Cáparra to visit the interpretive Centre, which opened at 10. Oh well… next time!
I got caught up with my blog, took care of some non-Camino business on my phone (a rather long and painful process), ate alone, had second thoughts about yesterday’s blog entry and edited it. Now I feel better.

Great pics and sentiments. Soldier on woman!
Love the blog thus far.
I’m happy to hear you feel better! Those baby toes… I know the feeling 😊
This is quite interesting as I have always wondered what this Camino was all about. Great blog and neat pics!
Do you expect to meet up with the group again? I’ve walked a few caminos and found it interesting if I’ve gained a day or dropped back a day.
I walked an extra 11 km today to catch up with 2 people!
Gosh it looks so pretty in it’s spring finery! I hope things are feeling a bit better for you… take care! x
