Day 4 (May 13) Zubiri to Pamplona -13 miles

Today’s walk included a little rain, a little sun and a little mud, but overall was very pleasant. For a good part of the day, we followed the Rio Agra, a beautiful clear stream.

We crossed the ancient bridge at Puente de Magdalena , dating to the 12th C.

And made our way into Pamplona, following the old city walls. We did a quick pass through the main square and headed straight to the hotel. We’re really tired! My feet ache and John has an inflamed calf muscle. Will take the evening off to rest and ice. (Mother’s Day bonus: when I asked for ice at the hotel, they gave me a 3 pound bag. Usually, in Europe, it’s difficult to get a few cubes in your drink.) Hoping to feel wonderful in the morning.

P.S. John wanted me to tell you about his day: Lost his passport, then found it in the restaurant where we ate last night. Offended an Australian lady by asking if her walking companion was her daughter, when in fact, it was her best friend. Saw a 24″ trout in the river. On balance, a good day. The trout got a lot of points.

    I assume the trout will be John’s high point while one of yours just may be that bag of ice! Happy Mother’s Day and love to you both!

    Happy Mother’s Day, Trish!!! Walked in the rain today thinking of the Deford family.

    An Irish Blessing —
    May the road rise to meet you,
    May the wind be always at your back,
    May the sun shine warm upon your face,
    the rains fall soft upon your fields and,
    until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His Hand.
    Thinking of you with much love,
