As I left Negreira this morning, I saw the huge crane, which means more building... with German Euros!! Ha! I know the Germans see those cranes and say, "Octoliebah!!! Bad spelling but it basically means, "Are you kidding me!!! What are we building now!??!"
It threatened to rain all day. Dark foreboding clouds everywhere. But no rain. The views were gorgeous, and the only cost was a steep climb up a mountain.
Huge storm yesterday and yesternight! Trees were knocked down across the trail, but you know me... I watched too many westerns and immediately smelled... Ambush!!
Looks like a sure detriment to pulling my backpack! There was lots of mud on the trail, but since it was such a rare occasion, it was fun. I saw some people with some browns spots on their knees and thighs, so my guess is that they had a different take on it being fun.
Today's trail was very well marked. It made walking on my own, lot's of fun. It's amazing how lost in thought I get and "wake up" and say, "Oh my gosh. Where is a marker?" Then I see a yellow arrow or a shell and I'm good to go!
It is not a good sign when you see the sky in the trail you are walking. Made me think of the time in Africa I was riding a bus and we had to get out and push it several times. That was mud up to my waist! T.I.A. can't get mad about it!
You can usually find fresh water fountains near the beginning of each city. A bit less on the Camino to Finisterre, but here was one. It looks like the lion in the Wizard of Oz.
At 29K I was on fumes. Then I saw this sign for a funeral service and managed to kick up the pace!! What's that old saying, "If you ain't movie', you must be dead!"
