Day 35, O Pedrouzo


View Deb's Camino de Santiago de Compostela on Deb Godley's travel map.

Well, last night was my last albergue and it was a great way to finish. Kim, Vittoria and I left at 6:30 am as usual and walked the 12 or so km to A Salceda, arriving at 10:30 am. We had some food and drink together and then had a photo taken before they left to walk on and I stayed to wait for Steve's bus. They were walking to O Pedrouzo and our pension was in A Rua, 2 km earlier. As such, we didn't expect to see them again until Santiago.

I knew he'd arrived because he emailed me from each airport as well as from Santiago the night before. The bar advised that the bus would arrive at 11:30 and it was right on time, although confused me was watching for it in the wrong direction.

Steve & I started out and walked toward A Rua. The first pilgrim we met said he was really happy to see Steve because Steve was finally someone even whiter than him, not having had the sun exposure yet.

When we arrived in A Rua, we found no pension and discovered it was actually in O Pedrouzo. As soon as we settled, we immediately emailed K&V to arrange a meet. Excellent!

They'd had a great lunch, but the bar was no longer serving food, so we moved to another restaurant around the corner, and also happily away from the leaf blower we'd been shouting over.

Steve had grilled garlic prawns, sizzling as they arrived at the table and I had a great goat cheese salad. Our food was so good, we all agreed to come back to the same restaurant later, K&V for dinner and Steve & I for dessert at 8pm. Here's a pic of us at the restaurant.

The pension was nice - our own bathroom with towels - what a treat. All set to start before dawn tomorrow for the final day's walk into Santiago.
