Day 22 to molino galochas

The early morning walk out of Leon was much more pleasant than the walk in.

After the modern twelve apostles statue on the church at virgin del camino we took the alternate route through villar de mazarife, avoiding the main roads. The country is changing again with scrubby oaks and hills mixed in with the fields, growing veges as well as wheat.

We continued on for quite a long day through to Villaverte, to a Casa Rural (B&B) called Molino Galochas after 32km. It is run by a lovely family who moved back from Madrid 5 yrs ago and renovated the old mill (and looked after elderly relatives). It has been beautifully done up with cute details like yokes as hand rails and mill stones in the yard. Galochas are wooden clog like shoes worn in the wet weather over your usual slip ons.

Once again we have been blessed with fine cool days making for easy walking.
