Undies – Oct. 12, 2022

  • Portuguese Camino: Day 29 / Redondela to Pontevedra
  • Distance: 13.7 miles / Total 397.8 miles
  • Time: 6 hours 30 minutes
  • Ascent: 1,380’ Decent: 1,345’
  • Weather: 60-77 blue skies

Not conforming to 8:45am daylight, I’m off at 6:00am in the dark. There are always others walking with headlights shining too. Joyously I ran into a UK couple. Their son travels to meet them today. He has new underwear for each parent. They are rapturous over the prospect of this gift. Perhaps I should have had children.

7:00am, pilgrims on the move.
The full moon at dawn.
Like the Lee Child’s fictional character Jack Reacher, they’ll toss their undies in a bin. Perhaps they will travel with only a toothbrush as does Reacher.

    1. I particularly liked this post too. I’m always carrying my back pack because it has a hydration system and is hands free. However about half the items originally packed in the are being transformed in a zipper cloth bag since A Guarda, (last town in Portugal) on October 8. My feet are beginning to recover and my spirits higher. ~linda
