One fine day….Carole King

Day 5- Cadavedo to Luarca -17km.

Today we found our shadows!

Sunrise over a chilly Cadavedo.

After our long and tiring day yesterday, were our shattered bodies are still in recovery mode, today’s section was a pleasurable seventeen kilometres into the beautiful fishing town of Luarca. We started off fresh with a cool breeze ahead of us and the temperature hovering around zero degrees. However by the first hill climb Michael had stripped off his long johns and by the next two hills he was again down to his prefered shorts. Unfortunately some of the paths were still wet and muddy but with the sun, there is some hope that they will start to dry. We again walked beside or on the road- Michael’s beloved N-632- but we did try to stick to the Camino as much as possible.

Descending into Luarca was a visual delight. This small fishing village, which was founded in the thirteenth century, surrounds the rectangular port with its colourful flotilla bobbing around the harbour. There are plenty of families gathering in the town for their pre-Easter celebrations. There is even a jumping castle with Homer Simpson’s inflatable head, down at the port for the kids entertainment.

Tonight we are staying in the Albergue de Perigrinos which is in the center of town. They offer a clothes wash/dry service for six euros per two kilograms of laundry. We gladly handed over our 1.8kg of mud caked clothes to them. So far there are just two other Dutch ladies staying here but they have limited english except to say that they are very cold, which it is. Another long day to come tomorrow and the forecast is for rain. I’m going to sit in the afternoon sun shortly and hopefully store up enough warmth for the cold night to come.

  2. Hello again folks,

    We are sorry the weather is against you. Surely the sun will shine again soon. Spring is on its way.

    Thank you again.

    Keep safe and Happy Easter to both
