Walking In A Fog

There are many people who go through life never knowing what they are doing or where they are going - trapped in a spiral of indecision and confusion. This morning - as we prepared to leave the  albergue - we were treated to the early morning fog that welcomes natives in this region. The thoughts of walking or biking brought immediate concern to the safety factor - would we be visible - on the paths  and roadways we selected to walk - would the heavy fog and dew make the paths slippery and dangerous - answers we could learn only after taking those first steps of the day.

                                                  9:30 am Fog Starting To Clear

                                         Yea! Sun Woking Hard To Clear Fog

These photos do not do justice to the views we are seeing this morning.  Both of us have decided that this part of the Camino is more enjoyable to walk - green is much more agreeable to us than the previous browns.

Short walk today - tomorrow we face a steep uphill and will not get a break for 13 kilometers so we rest easy tonight and contemplate tomorrow's journey - keeping our goal clearly in focus - not walking in a fog,

Buen Camino
