Legless - final but one leg - Ordes/Poulo to Hotel San Vicente
The weather is now a major factor. The forecast is not good and our plans are always subject to climatic influence. The café next to the hotel offered a perfect breakfast, warm drink and toast, and it was out to brave the drizzle and the early supermarket shoppers. Today's walk was …
