Two things from yesterday: First we crossed a bridge that marked the 100km mark.
Second there was a bodega that provides a free wine tap to pilgrims. Martin and I passed it in the evening but it was dry. So this morning at 8:00 I passed again and partook in a bit.
The albergue last night was different. It was after the other places and was in a community center complete with a euro handball court. The bunks were downstairs and not very full. I snagged a bed in the corner with no one around. I slept pretty good. I left about 7:30 but there was no coffee and no towns near. It was my first coffee free day in a long time. I took another alternate path that went higher for great views with very few pilgrims. Once rejoining the other path we continued through rolling pastures and vineyards. It was a great walk. The weather was overcast , cool with a nice breeze.
After a relatively short day I arrived at Los Arcos, a cute small village.
I selected a private albergue with 3 bunks in each small room (but they provide a breakfast!!).
I’ve been craving fresh vegetables so I went to the small square and had a great salad.
While sitting there I saw other pilgrims that would stop to chat. I skipped dinner tonight and visited with one of the crazy Irishmen from a few nights ago. The weather seems to have turned cool. I had to put the legs back on my shorts and break out my light jacket. The night was clear so tomorrow may be sunny and hot. All is well.
