After a few cups of coffee, some scrambled eggs, and orange juice,
we were ready to walk!
This is a fountain we pass on the way out of Molinaseca.
Joe and I walked the road the short trek to Ponferrada.
Having traveled both the Camino and the road,
we prefer the road.
For one thing,
we don't want to miss one of our favorite stops along this stretch,
For 1 Euro,
they serve this great cup of coffee,
along with a shot of fresh orange juice
and a little pastry.
It's just a sweet place to stop.
Plus walking the road cuts about an hour and a half off the trek
and I need to arrive early to be sure everyone's luggage arrives.
Soon, we were in town and could see the Castle.
I love this photo of Anita and Eileen hamming it up!

And this photo of Patty is priceless!
They have such interesting sculpture along the Camino.
We stayed at Hotel Templarios.
Nice, clean place with comfortable affordable beds.
We found a farmacia and stocked up on Compeed,
then had our obligatory Doner Kabob for dinner.
The next day's walk is much longer than today's.
Time to get some rest!
Note: If you are interested in walking the Camino Santiago,
but are not quite ready to go it alone,
consider joining Annie
on one of our small, affordable Camino walks.
