Beautiful day on the Camino, but maybe the last good weather for awhile. 13.5 miles so far today and rain a certainty for tomorrow they tell us.

The " typical" cafe is a misnomer- some look like hippy communes, some have gypsies outside pretending to be deaf & asking for money so their partner can steal from you, some are charming little village places with balconies overflowing with flowers, some are modern cafes & pubs, some are just tables of fruit & water set up by kind people for pilgrims.

" sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof..." - bible verse cross stitched by Clinton's mother. With blue skies, soft breezes, great walking companions and really cute bagpipe players along the Way, the only evil of the day is my bad toe.... So - all good.
