Sept. 6, 2013: This photo was taken at the “Wine Fountain” at Irache. It was once a monastic winery, now run by the government for the tourists, but still a lot of fun. Having an absolutely terrific time here.
Until last night I’ve stayed in public or parish-run alburgues or refugios every evening. But last night a friend traveling in Spain met me in Los Arcos, drove me in the rental car to Logroño where I got a private room & bath in a real hotel! After breakfast we drove to Navarette where I started walking again. Yesterday I walked from Estella to Los Arcos, about 22 km. & my longest day so far.
