Because of yesterday Allison and I decided to enjoy our private room and sleep in and make a short day of it (17km). It was very hot out today and without my hat I was suffering a bit.
We are staying the night in the largish city of Ponferrada. It has a cool restored castle built by/for the Knights Templar.
After waking here, checking in to the municipal albergue, showering and washing the clothes we set out for a quick tour of the castle and a search for a store that would sell me a hat.
It turned out to be over a 4km round trip but now I have a cheap hat to cover the noggin. It is O so stylish.
We are pretty near the Portugal border and just into the “thumb” of Spain.
Pictures to follow.
