Last night we had a wonderful evening – good food ( though very salty) and conversation.
From left to right – Massimiliano, Vittorio, Michael and me.
So almost everyone headed off at around 7.30am in the dark.
It was quite cool although it heated up later in the day. The lady at the cheese museum told me about a traditional shepherd’s hut on the edge of town that had been restored. I passed it in the dark so the photo isn’t the best.
The morning’s walk was very pleasant in the cool, with stone walls and lots of sheep . I imagine that this countryside hasn’t changed much for thousands of years.
When things heated up it got a bit harder and I had a 16Km slog on the bitumin .
After a 7 1/2 hour 31 km walk I arrived in Cañaveral. There are some even longer walks coming up over the next few days with no option to shorten them. My ankle is hurting more this evening and I’m a bit apprehensive about tomorrow.
At least I have a lovely place to dry the washing between the olive trees!
