April 9, 2018
Scenic start to the day. Very lush and green thanks to all the rain.
Back on the pavement.
Chapel and cemetary
Dark gray moody sky. We had half rain, half sun and a few threatening clouds.
We don’t know what these things are. They look like giant burrs … they’re about 2” in diameter.
Stopped to chat with Felix from Santiago.
These are the kind of roads we love walking down. No pavement, easy on the feet and scenic.
A woman and her German Shepherd keep an eye on the sheep.
We’re definitely in Galician farmland now.
First cow parade. These cows were unattended. They just started walking down the road.
We stayed out of their way and observed where they were going. They seem to know what they were doing even though there was no one escorting them.
They just kept going.
Turned the corner and eventually the cows found a place to graze.
Time for a lunch break. Too wet to sit on the ground.
The guidebook was in error. We were hoping we didn’t have to climb Monte Aro.
Very scenic farmland today.
There’s a docile watch dog on top of the stone wall just above the door.
We wandered through another little village.
It seems like everyone has watch dogs. When one starts barking the whole town starts barking.
We walked by another cow barn.
Peaceful cat sitting in the flowers.
And finally we reach Moranos.
Tonight were staying at Casa Pepa.
Very nice accommodations at this albuergue.
The sun came out in time for happy hour. Tosa is a doctor from Holland. She is sitting to the right of Diane. We also met Sarah and Bernard from Muenster, Germany.
Bernard was busted … he didn’t attend Michigan State … he bought the sweatshirt somewhere cheap.
Ended the day by having dinner with our new friends.
