This was the anticipated hard but scenic day. It was a beautiful day with a variety of scenery, more than 800 m gain in elevation (over 8 km), then down half that over another 8 km, followed by a 6 km trudge on roadside into town. I will let the photos do the talking.
We shared the albergue with the Swiss woman (who seems to be quite reserved) in one room and we had the other room. In true pilgrim fashion we walked several extra km looking for food and ended up getting delicious donair for take-way, supplemented from the grocery store. We have been preparing breakfasts the night before and just looking for coffee in the mornings.
