Today I logged mile 300 as we walked 12.64 miles in six and a half hours including several stops. One of our pilgrim friends walked for two hours by herself in the wrong direction when a spanish man stopped and asked her if she was walking the camino?  He told her she was walking away from the trail.  He then drove her back to the trail.  Fortunately we were at that location and then added her to our family for the walk into Mansilla de Las Mulas where we are all staying at the municipal albergue. ..very nice and we three combined to get a load of laundry done in the machine.

Along the road today we passed a french couple with a pair of donkeys that have walked from their home in Gras in the south of France.   We also lightened Kathleen backpack by leaving a pair of her sandals on a camino monument along with a sprig of yellow flowers...probably a weed but pretty.

We're all enjoying the late afternoon after fixing blisters,  showers and a light lunch feom Anante food stash....we all carry snacks with us. Tonight Kathleen and I are going to find a pilgrims ten euro meal and enjoy it.

Last night we were the only ones in our albergue and we slept late ... until 7:15 am in the very quiet building. 

Tomorrow we are following the recommendation in the guide book and taking the bus into Leon.  If you walk it is all through an industrial area.  It will be nice to see the cathedral again.

Buen camino
