On a Clear Day…

Day 12 – Fonsagrada – O Cadavo

There was no mist today!  Yeah!  Nothing else mattered because the sky was clear and we could see stars and distant lights and no mist!

We wandered up the hill for a morning coffee before leaving at 8.00.  Today promised to be another hard day… The guide told us to expect a ‘leg breaker’ of a hill!  I don’t know why I read these guides… I was dreading that hill all day.  But… No matter!  We had views and mountains and sunrises and I was happy.

Like yesterday there were 12 kilometres to go before services and so like yesterday we gave ourselves an 11 o’clock target.  We did it with time to spare but we were too late for tortilla so Gerry made do with a tomato on toast and I had a couple of squares of chocolate.

Refreshed we set off again.  I feel like I should wax lyrical about the day but truth be told it was simply a lovely walk in perfect weather.  We walked up and we walked down, we oohed and aahed at the views and baby cows and the kittens.  We chatted with pilgrims and we even managed the leg breaker.

We switched our bunks for a private room in the albergue and once settled found a tiende and bought some salad and tuna and hummus and enjoyed an early supper on the terrace chatting with our new friends from across the globe.

In short… Just another typical wonderful perfect camino day! Fitbit says 27.9km… And did I mention… There was no mist!
