Left Ponfrrada at 6:30 am. and it took us 45minutes to find our way out of town and on to the Camino.
Had a wonderful walk today, no pain and a light breeze. Walked alone and at a good pace, this is the best day so far, beutiful countryside vinyards streems and very old villages, stopped and talked to a few residents, as I get asked about Canada. Along the way a farmer stoped me and gave me a kilo of cherries. He has a on living in Toronto. There is birdsong all along the way. A few times I was wondering if I was on the right path, and everytime I was not sure there was in the distance a red dot, when I cougth up to it it was a french lady doing the Camino in stages. We waked the rest of the way together. Met the German lady who had fallen, her face looks terrible but she can keep on walking. Tomorrow will be a very steep climb, and in the next albergue no internet, so if you do not hear from me, know that I am fine and on the right path. Thank you all for your mail and posts, I am so happy to get your mail as I feel that you all are on the Camino with me.
Love you all.
