Today’s trek towards Santiago de Compostela took us through wooded paths and quaint country roads.
It was cloudy and at times there was mist in the air.
Galicia is magical! The forest has the most wonderful scent of the loamy earth and lush foliage. Walking along, the sound of rushing waters is never far away.
Another beautiful part of Galicia is the simple life. It is not uncommon to see farm animals while walking through the little villages.
Today I saw my very first pig in the yard of a simple house.
I also saw a yard full of cockrell, or as we folks from the States know them, roosters.
And of course a horse or two.
And some sheep and lambs.
Today being Good Friday, I felt sad thinking of all the years my Easter Sunday meal was lamb.
Tomorrow I will arrive in Santiago de Compostela. So far rain has not been a problem. Every day has been sunny and warm except for today which was delightful despite the mist in the air.
I am hoping the Galician rain stays away for another day!
