Day 7 - Alto do Poio to Portomarin, España, October 7, 2018
What a great sleep after such a cold and hard day! This morning was very windy and cold but at least we had 15 km all downhill. Along the way-
We stopped at Triacastela for coffee and to warm up. My hands were so numb I could hardly feel them. There are more and more people walking as we get closer to Santiago. I visited with a woman who grew up in Estevan but now lives in Peachland, B.C. Continuing on, we came to Samos to see the Monastery of Saint Julian of Samos which is an active Benedictine monastery that was founded in the 6th century. The current building is from 1951 when it was rebuilt after a fire-

and arrived in Portomarin. It was a good day - 61.58 km, and we've only got 94.7 km left to do in 3 days!
