All smiles !!
I’ll be watching you ‘having fun’ and it will be interesting to watch your little sub groups develop as you move along at your own comfortable pace.
Looks like you’re all experienced., so there will no doubt be a lot of experience swapping and learning too.

Buen Camino everyone
Annie

Hi, Marilynn! I was wondering when you were going to start! And Laurie is in the same group - I wanted to tell you, Laurie, that THE map did make it to Marilynn. Took TWO MONTHS from Paris Roissy airport to Capetown by registered mail!

Well, I keep my fingers crossed for you. Enjoy yourselves! Buen camino!

Such a nice moment for you. And for the rest of us too I'm sure.

Buen Camino to all!

The mob has splintered, not because of any reason other than different walking preferences. I am with four others ( only one a forum member) in Calahorra. jpflavin and Ortemio are a day ahead. C clearly and freewalker are a few kms back. And the rest are in Abla tonight. This is a beautiful camino with some tough parts but it’s hard to complain when you have snow covered mountains always in view!

Well, guys, I am hoping to see a few of you in Granada tomorrow (even if only for a few beers). Buen camino, amigos!

Well, part of the mob is in Granada now, I had the honour of sharing a couple of hours, a visit to the old Muslim school in Granada, a gorgeous ice cream and a short walk with Laurie today, she is in great form, I wish I had had time to walk with her tomorrow along the old Camino (by the river) instead of the new one (industrial states and boring suburbs for the best part of 20 km). The Granada Camino association has A LOT to learn from our Almeria neighbours. To those who are thinking about staying with the nuns in Comendadoras de Santiago, BEWARE: curfew at 7:50 pm... You are forewarned!

Hoping to do the Almeria-Granada segment sooner than later, perhaps at a slower pace than Laurie, but it is definitely in my agenda.

Buen camino to you all!!!

I am no longer part of the mob, and as of today I won’t have the constant enjoyment and entertainment provided by my dear pals who started with me in Almeria. So a new adventure begins from Granada.

So great to meet Amancio. And just a slight correction to the curfew info. You can choose—be in before they go to prayers at 8 or stay out till they leave mass at 9:30. Not being much of a party animal, I chose the former. ;)
Accommodations are lovely.

I feel like I am launching myself into the unknown, leaving the protectorate of the Almeria Association. Most wonderful Spanish association anywhere! Buen camino, Laurie

You’ll be doing plenty of side trips I’m sure !

And we’re all still here / never very far away
Enjoy

We just finished a tough day - La Peza to Quentar, about 28 km. It was interesting , having some of almost everything - steep climbs, steep descents, asphalt road, dirt tracks, river beds, pine forests, orchards, and a huge limestone quarry. The only thing missing was a bar. Now we are installed in a 3-bedroom townhouse in Quéntar. Others are in the hotel and a guest house, since there is no albergue. The Association people have been SO helpful! Paco was out on the trail today painting arrows.
