Rolling along ... Bowling on the Camino
Quite funny to see everyone scatter for shelter from the rain ... Leslie and I walk about, find some great wine, stop in a few cool shops. A few other Powton Pilgrims are also helping the local economy! Way to go team.
Ran into our first donkey on the trail ... Real ... A real donkey ... I learn later that this is this dudes fourth Camino with his "Burro" ... Whatever, donkey, ass, burro ... They all look the same .
I'm I'm danger of catching the Gray Fox in the flat department ... 3 to his 6 ... We have given up patching tires ... Javier purchased 10 spare tubes for 12 euro! Man things are cheap in some of these small towns/cities. Had a little snack after the ride ... Two pizzas, seven glasses of wine, one beer, and a plate of pasta ... 32 euro.
Bowling ... Yup almost got my first pilgrim pin today, dumb ass walker not hearing a repeated dingle of my bike bell, decides at the last moment "hears" me ... Gets startled and makes a quick shift to the left ... Right in front of me. I should have bowled her over ... But that is not the Camino thing to do... Skid to a halt at her heals instead.
Tomorrow we roll a long long way ... Hopefully it's not a mud bath of excitement!
