We left Ponte de Lima about 7:30 trying to get a few hours in before the rain began. Ha! No chance. It starting raining as we crossed the bridge out of town.
There are two types of special days on the Camino. One is the day you step out to welcoming, but not hot, sunshine. Anyone would want to be outside on this kind of day.
The other is like today. Almost every minute was a downpour. We climbed a mountain on mud and a slick rock trails. The views were spectacular. We are so lucky to able to do this!
