A Most Diffucult Day

How do you turn 14 miles of plains into the most difficult walk of our Camino?  Throw in A 30 mile per hour headwind.  Add 45 minutes of hard rain.  Be sure there is no shelter for a break during the last 4 hours.  Two encouraging items.  First, we reached the half-way point today.  Second, the challenges of the day actually give us much more confidence that we will reach our goal. (There aren't likely to be very many as painful as today).

We have changed our strategy a bit.  If you have been following the blog, you might have noticed we have not taken any days off from walking.  We had originally intended to take one rest day each week or so.  We now feel that walking slightly shorter distances each day, but not taking any days off will work better for us.

Only one picture for today.  The wind.
