After 18 days of walking it seems normal to walk up and down silly hills in sweltering heat, stopping to buy a sandwich or perhaps as on this day, a salad with duck meat. There was a picnic area and several pilgrims stopped and enjoyed each other’s company. We discussed whether to go to the next town or stay. The deciding factor was how far to the town after that. We space the towns. I am comfortable with 15 miles day, sometimes 18 miles if it is not so hilly and hot.
