A walk in the park

I took advantage of a break in our rather miserable weather today to commence training walks for my next camino. It was deliciously warm and sunny as Roly and I set out along La Turvilla stream, through groves of fruit trees and into the natural park. It was a delightful walk, of almost 13 km and I felt much too tired when I reached home. I definitely need to build up my stamina. Here are some photos I took along the route.

      Hi Annie, i arrive in Lisbon 30 April and will set off from there either the 1st or 2nd May. When do you set off? I envy you walking through those beautiful villages in the west of Spain. I loved the whole route, but particularly the last third.


I would love some feedback - tell me what you think.....
