We left the charming town of Los Arcos headed for Navarette. We had to go through the pretty big town of Lorgronos which seemed incredibly lively compared to any other place I’ve ever seen here in Spain. I later found out the place was in the throes of the festival of St Martin.
My genius walking partner suggested taking the bus through the long and boring modern part and then rejoining the trail. Good thinking!
We were rewarded by a sign to make the heart of any pilgrim sink ….Road works ahead …detour of two kilometres extra at the end of a 17 km hike! anyway the albergue is lovely and clean and I just had a nice veggie dinner. My bag transfer fell through but…I’ll figure it out in the morning
