Olive Trees – Sept. 19, 2022

  • Portuguese Camino: Day 06 / Azinhaga to Asseiceira
  • Distance: 16.6 miles / Total 93.8 miles
  • Time: 7 hours 15 minutes
  • Ascent: 651’/ Decent: 430’
  • Weather: 81 degrees / overcast with one 30-minute light rain

Olive trees can be so broad they can’t be circled with your arms. The trunks are rough and gnarly. Hollow center trees thrive. Some aged trees look as if the tops have been completely severed; yet, new limbs miraculously sprout bringing life. Trunks and limbs are disproportionate. Olive trees simply defy death. Olives simply taste delicious.

Olive tree orchard.
Broad trunks. Thin upper branches.

Today we purchased 1/4 pound of local olives for less than a dollar.
