5 of August – Xubia to Pontedeume

Today was cool in the morning but quickly warmed up to 80 F/25C.  The trail was half pavement and half natural trail through eucalyptis forests.  It rolled up and down hills, some of them slightly steep, and then along the beach of Pontedeume.

I crossed over several bridges today and in a few of the rivers I sighted schools of trout.  It was a lovely day to be walking the Camino.  Tomorrow morning promises a very steep climb straight out of the gate.

I walked  17km (forgive me but I have set my Garmin to report kms to me and I’m too tired to convert for you).  If you wish to find out the mileage 1 mile equals .62 km

I’m now going downstairs for dinner.  Yes, I am in hotels again should you be wondering 🙂
