Lires to Muxia

5 April 2018

Calla Lillies grow wild everywhere.

Passing some pilgrims on a muddy road on the way to Muxia.

Euchaliptis trees are common on the Camino. These were very large and tall. Oftentimes the bark has peeled off.

We walked by lots of fields. That structure in the middle is a horreo. They are elevated corn cribs. I don’t think they are all used for that purpose any more. I think many of them are decorative.

These crosses are everywhere in public areas. No separation of church and state here.

This road passes by some abandoned houses. Wonder how many centuries old they are.

Terry in the sky … checking directions.

Time for a foot rest. We found a nice sunny spot.

Very scenic walking.

Some of the watch dogs are lax about their duties.

Beautiful flowers grow wild everywhere.

Peggy took this impressive shot of a rooster.

Trudging up another hill.

Only 2K to Muxia. Everyone is happy about that.

We were greeted by the ocean. Beautiful wild flowers too.

A long walk along the roadside across from the ocean.

Soccer field right on the ocean front. Up on the hillside is a luxury resort that was scheduled to be finished 2016. Looks like they are behind schedule.

We love this albuergue … the Muxia Mare. Very clean and friendly. Not very big and newly remodeled. The bunks all have curtains, lights and outlets.

Peggy’s listening to the Twin’s home opener.
