Camino de Gastronomía Portuguesa y Gastronomía  Española – Day 4 – Esposende to Viana do Castelo

Distance Walked: 14.5 miles/23.35 kilometers
Total Distance Walked: 45.2 miles/72.75 kilometers

Another long mileage day, but through lovely little villages on the dreaded granite cobblestones and beautiful wooded paths.

Breakfast in the hotel was another one to write home about, although the eggs were not as yellow as yesterdays.

Lunch was another salad and beer.

Dinner this evening was in the hotel. Lin had roast duck and Deb and I had seafood rice. Again the food was top-notch.

Olives, garlic toasts and a very fresh garden salad


Roasted duck breast, mashed potatoes and mushrooms


Seafood rice

Followed by a mango, raspberry chocolate tart. Oh, I forgot to mention the wine was a very refreshing Vinho Verde.

  1. OMG! You’re killing me with these food pics. Even if I didn’t love walking so much, you’d sell me on the food alone.


    • Lova, another friend suggested I post pics of food, I thought hey may just be a good idea.

      I will tell you one thing, the food tastes like food tasted when we were kids and I’m convinced that is because everything is produced naturally without chemicals of any kind. Manure or fermented seaweed and compost is the fertilizer. Pest control for the produce is flowers. You Would Be Amazed How All THE Veggie Plots Have Flowers Inter planted. At any rate it sure makes for some delicious produce.

      Hopefully you will join me one day for a long walk on the Camino. I’m waiting.


  2. DROOLING!!!!!
    Getting fatter just looking at the pictures!


  3. Yes, Lynda, again, you’re there just before me! Currently, I’m trying to do some form of exercise every day, including doing unspeakable classes at the gym / torture chamber – need to loose some weight before my July trip – and then I come home to Arlena’s posts … not helpful, girlfriend!!!! Still I’ve often lived vicariously through other people’s lives and experiences and I guess I’ll keep torturing myself looking at all this glorious food every day! 🙂
