Day 8 Los Arcos to Viana, Spain September 29, 2022
Today was a great day! I can’t believe I am saying that but I think my body has become used to the torture and I’m going to be okay! My intention was again to just walk without trying to figure out how much further. The first village was 6.9 km and we were there before I knew it. I’ll work on that again tomorrow.
I bought some kinesiology tape to strengthen my knee. Marjanne, Helle and I are all taped up-
Today’s walk was only, yes I’m saying only 18.1 km. It was too far to go to Logroño which is the full stage so we went to Viana-
The walk was up and down with beautiful views-
A typical cemetery is walled and locked-
One of many ways to announce the camino-
We came upon a small chapel for we pelegrinos-
Then, out of the blue there will be a rest area-
We came upon an almond tree. They were so good. I saved some for tomorrow-
Not yet ripe olives that tasted disgusting-
More views, coming and going-
I’m dressed for the rain, which didn’t really come. It drizzled a bit but my suit kept me warm-
a great main course - I had meatballs and then flan for dessert. For $16 it also included unlimited baguettes and a glass of wine. We kept drinking wine for 1 euro/ glass until Santa Maria opened at 7.
