del Norte - Day 25 (27-May-2016): Muros de Nalon to Soto de Luina (17.0km)

We had a pleasant breakfast at our Albergue Casa Carmina in Muros de Nalon and walking weather was  excellent. After 5km we stopped for second breakfast in El Pito.  A wealthy family had an interesting home and gardens - they gave a school and other things to the city.  The walking route was on small roads, lanes and forest tracks with much of that through areas that had been logged.  The path was pretty muddy in some areas but mostly pleasant.  We reached our destination of Soto de Luina after only 17km and by 1:30pm so it was a short and relatively easy day.  We found an intersting hotel, Casa Vieja del Sastre, an old home filled with furnishings of the family that had owned it.  We walked into the village center and had a nice lunch "menu del dia" at a Sidreria then back to our hotel in a rain shower.  After a relaxing afternoon we had dinner in our hotel.

After a walk through our village we began walking on one lane "road"

Foxgloves in the morning

The road passed through an old clear-cut - shortly afterwards it entered forest and was muddy in some stretches.

Wealthy landowners in El Piton had large garden in front of their house

We ate dinner in our hotel.  My main course, pork shank, red cabbage and potatoes.  Cindy had fish with potatoes.  With a nice bottle of red wine.
