We started the day with fresh orange juice
with oranges picked from the tree and a hearty breakfast
prepared by our friendly hostess.
Setting off, we noticed that the area
had old wooden store houses on
stone "mushrooms", similar to Wallis
The route was mainly cross- country,
past some massive mansions, as well as
traces of medieval pilgrim ways.
We also met a surprisingly friendly sheep dog.
Also of more, we were greeted by the singing
us for some distance. of a robin, which followed
Ribadesella didn't seem all that interesting
the tourist information was closed, as were most of the shops.
we did however meet an Australian couple again
(add blog) and had a hot chocolate on the esplanade before
doing some shopping at a supermarket indicated by a green dinosaur.
The ate is famous for foss relics as well as prehistoric cave pai tings.
We walked on to the Albergue at
San Esteban de Leces, about 4km outside
Ribadesella. There we met quite a few
pilgrims from our earlier encounters,
as well as some new ones. We ate
a simple but delicious meal and retired
