Boo to Santillana del Mar

Tuesday 28th:

It has been very windy, but not wet while walking from Boo to Santillana del Mar. Today's distance was really too long and was hard, but Terry said he went round the long way rather than over the railway bridge on the lines. The 'rest of the world' was doing so but he decided not to even though it put 11km onto the total for the day.

Terry is in the albergue 'Arco Iris' (Rainbow) at Santillana, where he ate spent the evening chatting to the 'hospitalera' (warden) in Spanish while he had his meal.
We stayed in the 'Camping' above the back of the village many years ago, looking down over it and made our first journey to Compostela, by car, from here. That is where the dream of walking began and it has taken 15 years to come to this point.

NB If you are using Google maps to follow the route this is Bóo de Pielagos. There are two other places called Bóo in northern Spain
