April 30, 2016 Saturday
15.6 miles Started at 7 am – arrived at 2 pm.
I started the morning with a beautiful sunrise against a tree lined canal.
It was a day of solitude, morning meditation and prayers. The sun w was out but it was chilly, my coat was off and on all day. I stopped for lunch at 12 and sat with some ladies from New Zealand. I had a cheese and tomato sandwhich – enough for two people but I ate it all. Nothing out of the ordinary today, very flat walking on a wide dirt path next to a highway – with green fields on both sides and snow-capped mountains to the north.
I was greeted into the Sana Maria Albergue by two nuns with such warm and generosity! The sister carried my bag upstairs to my bed and another one took my laundry. This is an ancient medieval town fill of history and charm. I am home for the night sitting in a bar posting this as the church bells ring and many run out to mass. Another day of gratefulnless and serenity.
