Passing of Time – Sept. 21, 2022

  • Portuguese Camino: Day 08 / Tomar to Cortiça
  • Distance: 16.3 miles / Total 117.3 miles
  • Time: 7 hours 30 minutes
  • Ascent: 1, 905’ Decent: 1,299’
  • Weather: 88 degrees / sunny

By 10:00am, September’s sun gets my attention. By noon, I’ve added a long sleeve white shirt to keep off the sun and flies. By 1:00pm, I’m taking frequent breaks in the rare patches of shade. By 2:00pm, I hoping to be checked into my accommodation, to be showered, to have clothes washed, and to have eat my first real meal of the day. At the end of the day, a swimming pool to soak my mummy-wrapped toes is a real bonus.

Quiet streets.
Today’s pool.
Mummy toes. No blisters…yet.
Heavenly.

  1. Dear Linda,
    The little village you were walking through is so neat – reminds me of running through little towns in the Black Forest!
    Sincerely,
    Bill

      2. Dreadful. Body’s are tricky and require much balance. Bruising? A trip to the ER room sounds awful. How are you today? Glad the golf is good. ~linda
