(note the hairdo) and Jeanne. John joined
us beginning at Puente la Reina.
The group's spirits were livened after hearing that Castillo de Monjardin wine is available in Seattle. We agreed to stop by the Champion Wine Store just down from the church to make certain to get a sentimental bottle of our own.
|Shepherd friend and his flock leave tailpipe emissions|
but win our hearts with their nagging happiness.
|Knights Templar Church at Torres del Rio, our stop for|
the night. Greta sang in the beautiful acoustic before dinner.
We caught lunch at the cafe/bar just across from the church, then turned right and left the city by its medieval city gate, crossing the Rio Odron toward Torres del Rio, this night's goal. As we left Los Arcos we looked left to the portico above the cemetery entrance which when translated reads, "You are what I once was and will be what I am now." With that cheery thought we ticked off the 7 kms to Torres del Rio at a lively pace.

(Our stop at Torres del Rio completes the total distance equivalent our Cyber Pilgrims walked in Week 1. We'll stay in Torres until our group posts more mileage on Monday. Remember to send your totals for Week Two to Greta by then. Thanks, pilgrims!)
