Day 25 - Roamin'

Tue 10th Oct., Fuenterroble de Salvatierra to Morille, ~30 klms, +/- 40,000 steps, 8 hours door-to-door


Big day today. The last 5 klms/1 hour were/was a bit of a slog.


We were out of our casa rural by 8, around to Bar Jose for our morning coffee, and then on the road by 8:30. The first 18 klms from Fuenterroble to Pedrosillo de los Aires was on country roads, many of them on a Roman base. I had 4kgs of water on board.


After a late lunchtime coffee at Pedrosillo de los Aires combined with our empanada atun which we'd carried with us since yesterday, the last 12 klms, in roughly 2 equal halves, was on bitumen. We walk faster on bitumen (a bit over 5 kph, which is good time for late in the day, with a full pack when it's hot), but it does get a little tiring on the legs.


Not much commentary today. The body and mind are tired, so a few annotated piccies.


Miliarios #152. Can't help myself ...


The road ahead




#154. Janet rather tires of my "obsession" with these, but I figure I'll likely never pass this way again ...


The photo doesn't do it justice. Here the Roman road (in front of #154) is very clear. The base/supporting rubble is distinct


The 12 klm decision point. The answer was "right"



The very welcome sight of Pedrosillo de los Aires appearing at around 16 klms. Still a couple of klms to go though ...




Three lovely murals on the school wall approaching Pedrosillo de los Aires


Freshly ploughed ground amongst the oaks. Wheat?? Sunflowers??


Gecko art on a renovation in Morille.




The decision to stay in Morille was only made 3 days ago. We've chanced upon this "resort apartment" on the edge of town. Very non-Camino!!


We're about 20klms out of Salamanca, which for all intents and purposes is the half-way mark.


Hasta mañana ...

I hope you dipped your poor sore tootsies into that pool and J worked on her tan a little or at least had a little vino next to the pool.

So - did you get in the pool? I fully support your growing Roman interest, but you know where all roads lead to ! You will have to leave it to get to Santiago

We both cooled our feet in the pool.
