Day 3 Burguete to Larrasoana
Leaving before sunrise meant using our head torches. The pleasant yellow glow of the street lamps contrasted with the icy wind which drove the light rain into our faces. It did warm up slightly as the day wore on but we walked in drizzle most of the day.At least my socks stayed sort of dry.
The physical discomfort was more than made up for by the pleasure of walking through rolling green fields with the sights, sounds and smells of farming all around. Young foals. Cow bells. Birds twittering in the newly budding forests and a lovely variety of wild flowers.
A Challenging Day
It was a hard walk with the long, steep and slippery descent into Zubiri taking it’s toll on our knees. At the pub later most peregrinos were complaining of some ache or another.
The Next Day on the French Camino
26 April: Pleasant walk under overcast sky. Watched trout fisherman pull in a small catch. He promptly put it in his pocket for safekeeping.
Graffiti and Unpleasant Local
As you know I am interested in unusual graffiti. I got into trouble photographing this peregrino paste up. The owner of the bar where it had been put up told me that it was a bar and not for taking photos ‘como su pais’.’like in your country’. Then she turned away before I could respond.
Stopped in this village for great coffee and pintxos.
