Roncesvalles-Larrasoana, Monday October 2
It was another long day, logging in over 17 miles, that’s about 55,000 steps for you Fitbit folks. It was a trail that took us through some beautiful towns where the only place open is a cafe for pilgrims to stop and grab some tortilla and cafe con leche.
The towns appear and disappear every few miles, each with a church that still rings a bell at the top of the hour.
In between towns the trail went through lovely woods, over hill and dale-a lot of over hill! We are anticipating our visit to Pomplomatomorrow and took advantage of a friend we met on the trail. Literally on the trail. Instead of running with the bulls we decided to walk with the cows.
We finally came to larrasoa and room at the municipal albergue.
Your story of the cow in the road was very moooooving. You probably had to steer out of the way to avoid a collision. There is a lot at steak there and you don’t want to hide from any obstacles. All right, I’ve milked this long enough. Love your posts and love you!
That was utterly good! Hey did you hear the one about the Knight named Sir Loin?
