Day 14 — A Trek to Santoña

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.

Dinner in Santoña, so good:

 

A real salad is difficult to find in northern Spain.  Usually it’s lettuce, tomatoes, onion and tuna.  This one was delightfully different.

I decided to walk across Spain to pursue the many things I love about life: the great outdoors, spending time with friends, meeting new people, food, wine, music, and challenging the physical self. I'm fortunate to have a wonderful husband who has provided me with the encouragement, support, and love I've needed over the past several months of training and preparing.
