Day 65 – Palas de Rei

We have rain forecast for every day for the next week. Today it didn’t start until 11:00am, so I only had to walk in the rain for two hours. That makes a total of 10 hours since I started.

Bill, what do you listen to when you walk?

I try to walk without earbuds for 3 to 4 hours in the morning so I have time to think and pray. I usually listen when I’m next to a loud road or when it’s the end of the day and my feet are hurting.

When I do listen… it’s usually a podcast. Lots of Michigan football stuff (did I mention we crushed PSU?), and other favorites like Andy Stanley.

In Pamplona, I started listening to “The Sun Also Rises” since much of it takes place there. I’m only about halfway through, so I haven’t been listening to it a lot.

Occasionally, I listen to a Spanish music channel on Spotify.

Cool building in Portomarin.
Today, I took an alternative route to save some time, but not many people did, so I didn’t see another pilgrim for over an hour. I started to think I made a mistake until these two passed me.

Very cool ruins of “Castro de Castromaior.” It was occupied in the Iron Age between 400BC and 100AD. It’s built on a tall hill with berms encircling it. The Camino goes right by it.

  1. You are taking some really lovely photos. That cow was giving to the stink eye there at the end. Maybe putting a Spanish hex on you. Heading to Seattle this weekend to hook up with Shirl. Looks like we are in for cloudy rainy weather too.
