Day Sixty Three. 8.4 Miles, 13.5 Kilometers.
Written on June 21, 2012.
The Albergue in Puente Villarente offered breakfast at 6:30 am. We had breakfast then left at 7:00 a.m. We are seeing many pilgrims from the Albergue..they are passing us…then we see the bicyclists that we had dinner with. It is good to know a few bicyclists. It is not usual to get to know anyone on bicycles…they can go at least 60 kilometers per day while we usually walk 21 to 24 Kilometers per day.
Vern and I walked into Leon with Adele and Kim. It was a short, fun walk this morning. Adele and Kim went to the Albergue. Vern and I went to the Post Office to pick up the last mailing of supplements. We are staying at a room near the Post Office.
There is a lot to see in Leon. We started looking around right away.
13th Century Gothic Cathedral.
As soon as we walked into Old Town Leon we started seeing many people that we know.
Me, Vern, Shawna, Brigitte, and of course, Louis.
We had a great time exploring Leon. It seemed that any street we walked down was hiding a Plaza just around the corner. Dieter, a bicyclist from Belgium took us to a hidden plaza. We had dinner in a wonderful restaurant. There were very few non-residents in the plaza.
A way marker in Leon.
Three guys in Leon with a great vantage point.
As I was taking a photo of the footprint way marker I turned around to see these guys. Another photo just waiting to be taken!
