Leaving Puente La Reina heading to Estella

Day 6

A day without coffee is not a good day. We started our day off right with some café con leeche . Then we walked out of the town,

We walked over a bridge, Puente la Reina, meaning; bridge of the queen.

There were more clouds today and a light rain, nothing major in the forecast though. Past more vineyards and olive groves.

The terrain is much nicer, hills not mountains.

Its so strange to me that we see these places far off in the distance than more and more details as we get closer.

Sometimes there are newer houses and developments before we enter the older section, which in this case is another walled city.

With very narrow streets that go up and up, if a car comes you have to move fast.

This is a picture of Al and Jameem, a Korean girl we have walked with a few times on a segment of the old Roman road.

This road is over 2000 years old.

Lunch was paella and lemon beer, both were very good.

Later we grabbed some figs from a tree beside the trail, fresh figs are marvelous.

This is what their fields look like , more stones then Connecticut I think.

All of the doors here are incredible, it could almost be a contest, this is the winner today.

more to follow, until then be well. #pilgrim #doors #caminodesantiago

    I hear you on the no coffee. I need me that cup of coffee to get me going. Sometimes that pick me up later in the day. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
