Hola mis gentes!

After one week of resting up and enjoying the culture in Oveido, came Friday morning...
He said: So! Are we going to Cudillero today?
She said: How about starting the Primitivo and see how far we get. 😁

We were happy getting just halfway through the first stage, since we didn't train much at all before. The humidity was pretty high so we stopped overnight in Los Regueros where, they serve a lovely salad and yummy Chipirones Fritos!

Leaving early enough to get a fun shadow shot with my guy. On the way to Grado we met up with all kinds of Peregrinos and weekend warriors, on this very pleasant, not as humid or strenuous as yesterday's walk.

By the way around 13:30, the Albergue de Peregrinos in Grado had only 2 beds left. We walked up with a French man and told him to go for it. Got 2 of 4 remaining beds in Albergue La Quintana.

Yes, Rosemary! How's it going for you? We left Grado this morning and are back in Oviedo, gearing up for starting another Camino. 👣

Laurie, It's about halfway between Oviedo and Grado, around Escamplero. Restaurant and Accomodation around the corner from the Albergue de Peregrinos.

@peregrina2000, that's it Laurie! Yes... the same place. ;)

Well, we're going to take a little hike into the local mountain to check out (yet another UNESCO site) two pre-Romanesque churches:
and

Also, should anyone want to stay someplace close to the center of Oviedo, I very highly recommend "Marco's" Airbnb:

EDIT:
Next hike https://www.wikiloc.com/hiking-trai...ranco-san-miguel-de-lillo-escamplero-39661911

Woke up this morning and could barely put any weight on my left foot heel without pain. It just seemed to get more painful through our morning outing so, we headed back. Apparently because of the many days of walking on these hard stone streets in my flat sandals, I developed Plantar Fasciitis. ☹️ This is a bummer because, it could keep me from doing Camino. I wrapped my foot and laid down most of the day. Anyway, tomorrow (Lord Willing) we'll take the train to Gijón again, where I can buy some proper support walking shoes.
Fingers crossed that it works out.
