Dia Ocho – O’Cebreiro a Triacastela – Misty Day

20130907-144716.jpgThe day is cold and misty. Much different than a week ago. We are in the mountains for now, but the day has us headed down again. There is a chance of rain and the clouds hang out for most of the day.

Other than the beauty with the mist mixed in, this was not my favorite day. Lots of cows walked the trails we walked so the scenery and smells reflected that. If you get my drift….

I arrived to Triacastela after 13+ miles and 5.5 hours. Angelica and Mark probably a half hour a head of me as I take longer on the downhill. Those extra 4 miles left my legs a bit tired and achy and with a huge appetite. My lunch was healthy except for the fries. They serve fries with almost every meal. The tomatoes tasted homegrown. The chicken was very juicy, tender and fresh.

  1. I so loved the hike down out of O’Cebreiro… all the memories are flooding back from my time on the Camino Frances. Your photos are fantastic! Enjoy each moment.

    • It was one of the prettiest walks. I can see how it is hard to settle back into regular life after this experience. I met a guy who has been here for two months. He meant to go home twice but can’t seem to leave. 🙂

      • Yep, not wanting to go home is for sure a reality for many Pilgrims! Be careful 😉

  2. I admire everything about your excursion! Not many people can say they have done what you are doing. All the food looks wonderful, and scenery looks beautiful. Miss you!
