Walking The Camino: Day Twenty-six

Our longest day so far. Thankfully the weather was beautiful with temperatures approaching 80 degrees. Twenty-three miles in just under nine hours, which included a nice lunch in Cacabelos.

 Day 26. Heading out at 7 am. The only people awake at this hour are the pilgrims.

Another stone bridge. I love them.

First coffee break.

Our friend saying see you down the Camino. He's carrying a huge pack. I'm not sure how much of what he's carrying is necessary.

Stork's nest.

Lunch break in Cacabelos. Three courses, with bread, a bottle of wine, and coffee for ten euros each.
Alan had all his favorites - lentil soup with chorizo, braised rabbit, and chocolate cake for dessert.

Through the western wine area of Spain.

And we arrive at our hotel in Villafranca del Bierzo almost nine hours later.
