We began walking and talking but the yellow arrows were not easy to find. I was navigating by the GPX files downloaded onto my Garmin, but the rest of the group wanted to go a different direction following another pilgrim. So I walked with them knowing I would be able to find the route.
It seemed we walked in circles around Caldas de Reyes until finally we caught up with a few Italian pilgrims who led us to the exact place where I had said we should turn left and the group decided to walk to the right.
It was a long day of walking. The temperatures did rise quite high that afternoon. We stopped for lunch in Padron and naturally ate some Pimentos Padron.
After walking a few klicks more, we arrived at the Hotel Scala for the night.
