It was a beautiful day for a hike to Muxia, it was long and once again there were many hills to climb. I had stayed in Casa Curina in Dumbria and would most definitely recommend this as a stop along the way. The casa was beautiful and the family was so hospitable. I was invited into their kitchen to share a drink with them. They served me Canejo and some other sort of homemade ‘white lightning’ both made by their grandfather. We laughed and tried to communicate in both poor English and poor Spanish.
I began my walk in the morning after a delightful breakfast in Casa Curina.
Again the path was wonderful through many wooded trails. I can’t begin to say how much I am enjoying my August 2014 Caminos. There aren’t many other pilgrims on the Caminos I have chosen, the weather is positively gorgeous and naturally the food and wine is superb.
At last I caught a glimpse of the ocean, it seemed so close but my Garmin had only recorded 16 kms walked. I thought I was in Muxia but I still had a huge hill to climb, a monestary to pass and another lagoon to reach before the 22 kms was completed.
