We are all very happy that we’ve completed two weeks on the Camino. It has not been without some maladies: a few expected body aches, an unexpected cold, and the worst–blisters!! Judy has been plagued with them since just a few days on the trail. It seems at the end of every day, there’s a new one, or two, to make an appearance as she pulls off her socks. But with the help of Denise, who has treated many a blister, Judy has been able to move on the next day.
Our walk to Santoña was a bit challenging but beautiful. We climbed over two mountains, the second more magnificent than the first. Our day ended with a ferry ride from Laredo to Santoña where we spent the night in a well-worn Albergue.
A real salad is difficult to find in northern Spain. Usually it’s lettuce, tomatoes, onion and tuna. This one was delightfully different.
