Day 5–Viana

On Day 5, Saturday, we walked 11.7 miles from Los Arcos to Viana. It was an awesome weather day. The first 6 miles or so were quite level and lovely. The second half had lots of climbs and downhills. The sky was blue and clear. We are tired and happy. Russ and I have now walked every step of the Camino Frances, from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Santiago, at least once.

Delightful start to the day
I think I see a village over there!
Vineyards everywhere
Spectacular morning’s walk
Somebody built a rock forest along the trail
Pilgrims decorated a tree on the forest
Our Lady of Poyo had rosy cheeks
The trail became mich more hilly
Yikes, we just walked down that trail!
Thank you Casita Lucia for the cold Aquarius and the almonds fresh from the trees. What a welcome break on a long stretch with no villages
Real chairs, even!
Almost to Viana
We stayed at the Pension San Pedro in Viana. Okay bit not our favorite. Small rooms and steep stairs. Bit this nearby square with San Pedro presiding was nice
