Walked from Hornillos to Castrojeritz, 20.0 km.
Well today is the first day that I walked alone "by choice" the day started out cool but sunny and I started walking at 6:30 this morning the birdsong was wonderful and the younger crowd of Pilgrims were not on foot yet, so it was nice and quiet. The morning sun cast a long shadow of me so I did have good company. I am now walking the Meseta which is a high but flat plateau. Again there are lots of flowers but the path is very uneven and that is hard on my ankles. I am now walking much slower and that without my Pack as I do send it ahead every day, I could not continue if I had to carry it. So I carry a little bag with my essentials, and still need almost two hours for 5 km. but my feet hurt too much if I go faster, as soon as I get to the hostel, I take the boots off and give the feet tender loving care and encourage them for the next day.
Tomorrows stretch is 27.0km and I might do it in two sections depending how the feet do.
I am still enjoying The Camino vey much and hope that the ankles improve so I can make it to Santiago. Thank you all for your comments, it feels like I have you all with me. Belated Happy Birthday Chantal, there was no internet in Hornillos so I am one day late.
Big hug to all
