Day 3 (9/21) - Roncesvalles to Zubiri
Last night was spent in the huge pilgrim's hostel at Roncesvalles. At 10pm they turn off the dormitory lights and then back on at 6am so we got an early start at 7:15. Sunrise is at 8am and there was a full moon and clear skies so it was neat walking. Today's walk was about 15 miles under pleasant weather with a few big hills and one steep descent. When we arrived at Zubiri we were ready to stop for the day. It was difficult finding a place to stay but we were fortunate to find a pension. That gave us our own room rather than the bunkbed filled room at a pilgrim refuge. After cleaning up we found fellow pilgrims at a local bar and then met at an Alberge for a communal dinner. We have been seeing most of the people shown below every day so far.
