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.
