That makes 3,001 miles in the past 28 months. That’s really a long way if you think about it.
Walked through Vila do Conde. Made me think of the Conde Spartans!
This Conde just has nicer beaches than Conde, SD.
The “Hola” smile of the day. She enjoys working in her garden and it shows.
I’ve seen several of these portable libraries parked near the beach. What a great idea!
Labruge was my target destination but the room I booked was actually a mile further south in the small fishing village of Lavre.
The majority of the walk today was along the beach. You can see the path in left and center of this picture.
It was a pretty non-eventful end to this hike. Met the lady I’m renting room from at her sister’s restaurant (a block off Camino). Felt a bit like Forrest Gump. Then one day I just stopped walking.
Did celebrate a bit. Had a few beers at a local bar. Bought a round for the house (myself and 2 guys who spoke no English!).
This guying is grilling sardines (right). The kebob is peppers, onion, and octopus. I didn’t try either. I do like hake. It’s a flaky white ocean fish. Very good grilled.
I am going to just relax in Lavre for 3 days and then Porto for 4 days.
I’ll be in touch regarding your pledges in a couple days.
Thanks to all for your support and encouragement. I appreciate it.
Hope you enjoyed the hike.
Happy trails and buen Camino!
