It was a really nice, partly cloudy, 65ish kind of day. Good walking weather.
Got my long board out to shred a few today.
I think we should all chip in, buy this beach house, and just make it party central. I’ll be in charge of the Budweiser. You guys figure out who’s in charge of all the rest of the minor details. Who’s in?
Approaching the town of San Vicente de la Barquera. Appears to be another nice surf town. I’d only been walking for a couple hours but thinking about stopping here for the day.
Went by a bunch of surf shops and surfers just before town. I was liking it.
This guy must be extremely patient. I can’t imagine how long it takes to rake together one of those big bales!
One of my “things” is I smile and say “Hola” to everyone. Construction workers, joggers, farmers, everyone I pass. I get extra special enjoyment when it’s an elderly person who is alone. I’ve gotten some unforgettable smiles in return. You can do this at home yourself. Sometimes these people are alone and sad. Your hello may make their day. It’s easy and you’ve nothing to lose. Give it a shot.
I offered $1000 for this old school cigarette machine. Fortunately they said no because I really didn’t think about how I would carry it.
Happy trails and buen Camino!

You are right about smiling at people. I try to do that too. The pretty lady looked happy when you smiled at her and she smiled back. It doesn’t cost a cent!! You are such a clever writer, you have to do a book. Love the pictures. Stay safe. Love You, MOM

Great scenery as usual Jeff. I agree with smiling and greetings in their language. It just makes you feel better too I think. I sometimes try to Initiate a conversation in my minimal knowledge of a different language only to sometimes get caught off guard when they want to continue the conversation out of my realm. Oh well….

I made a MAJOR error in my pledge 😳😳. I put an extra zero in my pledge amount. Meant for it to be $10 per mile NOT $100.
Got day 18 from Dill Harper. He was talking about a friend sending these to him. What happened to mine, where is it? Does he pay 💰 better or send you beer 🍺 from time to time? What’s wrong with this “picture” I am asking myself.
Just kidding, although I didn’t get it. Enjoy your daily stories very much, and obviously the pictures, …….. and the comments as well.
Happy Trails and Buen Camino
