People seem to be getting up earlier and earlier. When we hear people stirring, we get up, so today we were on the trail by 6:00AM. The sun is rising later and later, so we walked a lot in the dark before stopping for breakfast about four miles in.
The day went quickly with lots of distractions…two small towns and then the large town of Sahagun, with a visit to the farmacia (pharmacy) for supplies for my new blister. These pharmacies along the Camino will never go out of business. We also passed the geographical mid-point of the Camino, with this marker.
As we got close to Bercianos del real Camino, we saw a newish-looking albergue, La Perala, on the outskirts of town. We got beds in a room with only four beds and a private bathroom! It’s like a resort.
