Llames to La Isla

Terry has walked an amazing 32km today, past Leces to La Isla and is in the albergue (hostel) there for the night.
It has been sunny all day. He arrived at 17.00 and by 17.50 he had his washing hung out and was going for a drink.
He is really pleased to have come so far today. He is expecting to reach Oviedo on Friday or Saturday, for another rest day. Then he will have to decide whether the weather permits turning towards Lugo. If not he will return to the coast on the train to pick up his route again as near as possible to where he left it.
The old 'Camino Real' comes off the beach at La Vega. Obviously the original 'way' and still had paving in some places, in others holes full of mud!! Everything was closed at La Vega except for a small 'kiosko' where the young chap made me a sandwich! Cheese and choritzos in a loaf of bread!!
