Day 10 (9/28) - Viana to Navarette (23.3km)

Up and walking around 7:30AM - sunrise is now around 8am. This view is looking back towards Viana with the ruins of an old church at top of skyline.

Entering downtown Longrono area.

The path through Logrono was marked with nice tiles.

Beginning to see lots of the famous Rioja vineyards, with the Tempranillo grapes nearly for harvest.

Navarette, the end of our day's journey is in sight!

After getting settled in to our room, a double with bath at Albergue El Cantaro and the usual shower plus laundry ritual, we found a really nice bar, "Bar Deportivo" and had some delicious tapas and a couple of glasses of Rioja wine and watched the rain begin. Back to our room for a nap and then back to the same bar for their pilgrim menu dinner. I had garlic soup with smoky pepper taste (paprika?), pork jowl, and torte and Cindy had local vegetables, stuffed red peppers and chocolate mousse. Of course, we had a full bottle of Rioja. All for 15 euros each. Wonderful!

Location:Navarette, Spain
