Day 43- Virgen del Camino to Villadangos del Páramo

  • Distance today:                    8.7 mi
  • Distance Camino 2017:    311.7 mi

Today was chilly and windy for the entire walk and we were thankful we had our warm clothing.

The best thing about our experience today was that we completed nine more miles of our journey. Otherwise there isn’t much to say and there wasn’t much to see.

The Camino followed N-120 and we switched back and forth between asphalt and dirt path picking the easiest way.

The two villages we walked through had a total of one bar which became our breakfast stop at 4.0 miles.

We got to our destination, Villadangos del Páramo (pop. 1140) at 10:30, checked in to our hotel, Libertad (45€), completed our chores and had lunch by 2:00.

There isn’t much to say about the village, the food or the one restaurant and one bar that were open.

We mostly rested and looked at all the hurricane info we could find. Thankfully, we confirmed that Linda’s mother, who lives in Irma’s path on the Florida west coast, is safely in a community shelter and seems to be reasonably satisfied with the temporary accommodations. Hopefully her home will not be severely damaged when the storm passes through tomorrow.

We’ll keep our fingers crossed and say an extra prayer for her and all the other folks enduring this devastating hurricane.
