We boarded our London taxi again and were delivered to the spot where we were picked up yesterday. So, today's walk began around 10.15am. We followed fairly good quality trails up hill and down dale for a little while in rural and not so rural areas. I found the perfect stick this morning to help with my wearying hips, and used it just for the fun of it.
We stopped for morning tea, and got chatting to these friendly Spanish and German people. One of the Spanish men spoke good English. He bought us each an orujo, a sweet tasting liqueur.
Our first sight of the Cathedral de Santiago - in the distance - came about 2.22 pm.
Inside the Cathedral de Santiago, we queued to climb the few steps that led up behind a gilded model of St James, the apostle, who has stared down upon congregations throughout the centuries. Custom dictates that pilgrims put their arms round St James to have all one's sins forgiven. Everyone else did so, and although we're not Catholics, we followed suit.
