Start of the Calzada Romana after C de los Hermanillos

I walked this part of the Camino with my Danish Camino Daughter. Even in mid-late May it was a very warm day departing Sahagun just after 6.30 am and arrived at Reliegos just on 4.00 pm. I don't remember meeting another pilgrim. Ah memories

Since there are no trees and shade, I rested about halfway through by putting my head under a small bush (it was August). It probably looked ridiculous. The only pilgrim I met passed by - a very young American. He stopped and talked to me for a few minutes - it was obvious he was checking to see if everything was okay with me (and he was too polite to ask, "Old woman, are you still alive?" 🤣 ). When he made sure everything was OK he continued visibly relieved. This is one of my most precious memories on Camino.
I was also impressed with the number of storks.
 
Hola @m108, you are correct there is no shade or shelter on the first section to Calzadilla (we stopped here for our 9.00 am coffee); we also refilled all our water bottles (I think I had nearly 3 litres) and Hanna had a bit over two. On the second section there was a rest stop about 3.5 km after we crossed the only road (but no water - for humans). The last section in to Reliegos was very tough on Hanna (she was out of water - shared mine - but she really needed shade). We were glad to get the bar and the albergue. I would not recommend this alternate in August, unless you did in two days. Cheers
