Day 39 (10/27) - Sarria to Portomarin (23.1km)

Daylight savings time kicked in overnight so we got an extra hour of sleep. It will be nice to have more daylight in the morning since sunrise has been getting close to 8:30am and finding the correct way out of town in the near-dark was sometimes a problem. Breakfast was included in our room and we walked for 10km or so before stopping for second breakfast and then continued on another 7km and stopped for lunch. We split a mixed salad and a nice bowl of lentil soup plus each had a cerveza con limon. The trails and terrain were nice with no particularly difficult stretches. We crossed the first large river that we have seen and climbed up the hill into Portmarin and found Pension Posado El Camino, near the church.

Typical pathway today

Note the yellow arrows, marking the "way" on the old stone building.

More neat pathways.

This marker shows 100km from Santiago - the end of our journey. We hope to be there after 4 more days of walking and arrive on October 31st.

Neat old church, illuminated by the setting sun, just across from our Pension (see below).
