Day 1 of Walking Matisinhos to Vila do Conde

Today was a beautiful day walking along the seaside.  For the  most part the walk brought back the days of my youth, growing up on the south shore of Long Island, New York.  Although I must say it was my very first time walking across the sand in hiking boots.


At one point I needed to climb up a very steep path to get back to the Camino.  The path was narrow and felt almost verticle.  At the top, I reached a very strange cement thing (I don’t know what to call it).  I will let you place a name to it, if you dare.


The walk was longer than I anticipated – 14.75 miles with the major portion of it following the shore.  The winds blew and the sun was shining.  It was truly a beautiful day for walking the Camino.

  2. Debbie, I hadn’t even read Bill’s post until you commented on mine. I was not far ahead of Bill and Jen and didn’t see such a thing.

    I think the cement thing kind of looks like Thors hammer.

    Sounds like you are having a magical time. Enjoy!!
