She had a dream

... and playing cards around the big country table. The 4 others had just done "the hill" that morning - poor Kuhn - his 18 year old son took videos of him going up, and shared them with all of us. It wasn't pretty, and we all laughed until we cried. The place has been open for 5 months, and Leslie said this was the best time she's had with her guests. She even opened up one of her last bottles of their first year of making wine (which she usually does not do). It was really ...

... Really!!?!?

The last few ascents were difficult. The swear words continued. Finally - I was there. The top. I danced a happy dance and was done swearing. Unfortunately, however, I did not see the very religious man at the top sitting and quietly praying with his rosary. Not only did he see my happy dance, but he had to have heard everything I was saying on the way up. How embarrassing. I wanted to stop at the top, but I was playing through my mind some ...

What a great decision to stay in this town for the day. Ponte de Lima is beautiful. Rainy/overcast this morning, but it cleared up this afternoon - perfect.

The sun finally came out today - with a vengeance, and very little shade on Camino in this stretch. But was bound and determined to make it all the way to Ponte de Lima. Left Tamal at 8am and arrived in Ponte de Lima at 6pm. The rough terrain and need for breaks in the shade sure slowed me down. Fitbit shows over 20 miles traveled today. But I made it!! (Sooo happy to see the 1 km sign!). Oh, and a wonderful Portuguese gentleman who stopped from ...

Sadly we left Combarro and headed south for the next Ria. There was little bit of wind so we got a pretty decent sail in.

We anchored in one of the first bays, it was quite crowded actually. Being a weekend the beach was full of people - mostly naked people we discovered after settling in. Not because of the sights but due to the swell we reanchored closer to the headland where we hoped there would be less rolling about.

The following morning ...
