Day Forty Nine. 18.5 K., 11.5 Mi.
Written on June 17, 2014.
A few days ago we met Dai at an Albergue in El Acebo. He recently emailed a photo that he had taken of us.
Vern, Angel, and Nancy.
When Pilgrims began to leave the Albergue I was wide awake. I decided to get up and get ready while Vern and Angel were sleeping. When I was ready to go I realized that they were still sleeping. I let Vern know that I was leaving and started walking.
A contrast of new and old.
Some form of a Palloza.
I stopped to take a break in a village and saw Vern and Angel walking so I called out to them. As soon as they arrived Vern told me that he had found money in the bathroom at the last Albergue. Soon after he told me the story two sisters who we had met the night before arrived. They started to tell us that their sister and Mother were behind them. The sister discovered that she had lost her money and went back to the Albergue for a possible 4k. detour. Vern asked them how much money…they said 15 or 20 euros. He had found 20 euros. He handed them a 20 euro bill. They immediately texted their sister. All we could say is, “That's the Camino”!
