Walking from Sarria to Portomarin 21.5k

Our first day back on the Camino was a beautiful one. The countryside was scenic, small stone farms reminiscent of France, farmers working, cattle, sheep, fruit trees, wind mills high on the mountain ridges. The difference was many more pilgrims and lots of fancy rest stops with restaurants, lavish bathrooms, trail angels, even a taxi went by at one point. Most of the ‘trail’ is on country roads accessible by vehicles. At one farm a bread truck called the “Bothersome Bread Company” rolled up and honked its horn for about two minutes, true to its name.
The one 9th century church we tried was open and had a lavish altar obviously from a later century. Tom lit another candle. We met a couple of couples from the States: one from Danbury, Conn. and one from Nevada. That had not happened before.
The day was long but we made it before 3pm.
