Another day of sunlit mist and granite uplands. The gorse is festooned with dewy cobwebs and there are chestnuts and autumn croci; it’s a delight to walk an autumnal Camino.
But the almost highlight was an absolutely enormous steelworks perched high on the horizon at the Great Divide, where the Camino routes divide to Finisterre and Muxia; I rather admire the unashamed disruption!
It’s a long walk uphill and then down to Cee, a small town on the estuary. My left knee is very painful walking downhill, so I adopt a strange diagonal gait with my poles taking the strain.
The Camino often transitions abruptly between rural seclusion to suburbia.
The Albergue Moreira is spotless; the host ever vigilant and helpful. It has a well equipped kitchen, so I buy fresh cod and salad for supper.
