September 17 2023
This morning was cold and bluster as we set off. Forecast was for heavy rain and it was a very believable forecast as the sky was a very dark shade of gray. There was suppose to be a historic chuurch just on the outside of town but some how we missed it. It must have been on one of the side loops.
As the Primitivo has joined with the French way the number of people on the trail has increased by an order of magnitude. On the Primitivo you might see ten people all day, and now there are at least ten people in site all of the time.
We only had 14.5 kms to go so we had left at 9:00 am and with numerous coffee stops it seemed like it took forever to walk down to our hotel in Azrua. I was really feeling that some of our crew must really want to get rained on as it was getting darker and windier by the minute yet there we were stopping yet again. We did arrive just after 1:00 pm and the luggage was not here.
I went for a stroll through the town and as it is Sunday everything was closed. On my way back I ran in to Maureen and Lorraine who were headed off to this local cheese maker. Apparently this town is famous though out Spain for its excellent cheese. Maureen had it all scoped out so we went into this shop and ordered their cheese sampler plater. It was huge and came with a basket of bread. I found the cheeses to be absolutely excellent. There must have been a dozen different kinds ranging from hard to soft . The blue cheese was my personal favourite.
By time I got back to the hotel my luggage was here.
It has started to pour so made another day without rain.
