Estella to Los Arcos - 21.9 km

Woke up at 6:00, ate breakfast at the bakery, and was on the move by 7:00. After leaving town, we walked about 2 km to the Fuente de vino, a winery. They have a tap where you can fill your bottle with wine if you want.

Today’s weather was light clouds, then clearing with blue skies all day. The temperature was 54 degrees early and only in the upper 50's later. Water was abundant too.

This stretch of trail doesn’t have many towns but around noon we did come to the little town of Villamayor de Monjardin where we had lunch. I finally got a chance to have a salad; it was good. The rest of the day was walking across fields (no towns) until we got to Los Arcos and into Albergue de la Abuela, which is a really nice place. It has 32 beds.

After we got cleaned up, we went “out on the town” so to speak, saw the church, and then went to dinner. The restaurant was a nice restaurant, but still had a "Peregrinos" meal. I had chicken, potatoes and a mixed salad with cake for desert, all for 10 euros. It was a good night.

More to follow tomorrow. Buen Camino!
