DAY 15: TUESDAY, MAY 2, 2017
SUNNY AND COOL
This was a very easy day. Less than five miles to Santo Domingo where we planned to take a rest day. My son Quinn and fiancé Emily are going to join us there. They started in London, went to Paris, then to LaRochelle France and San Sabation, Spain. So excited to see them.
We had been hearing about all the cold and snow back home. Also hearing that the beginning of our Camino in the Pyrenees was also experiencing cold and threats of snow. So glad we got through it when we did.
We were having a beer and the bartender ran out and wanted to know what size socks we wore. He gave us a free pair of “900 year anniversary” (of Santo Domingo) socks … a freebie. A little odd but we loved it. I’m getting the feeling that Santo Domingo is a very strange town with lots of oddities …. the hanging man cookie, the Rooster in the cathedral and happy hour socks. Quinn posed with the bartender and his new socks.
