Finisterre to Cabo Finisterre (End of the Earth) - 7 km

Lat: 42.908056 Lon: -9.263056

Hawk woke me up at 7:15 a.m. so that he and I could go to breakfast. This was going to be a zero day except for going to the light house. We discussed what to do about going to the light house at the "End of the Earth." He wasn't sure if Christine was going to go or not. I just said that I was going even if it was pouring rain. As it turned out we all went and it was drizzling rain and a real heavy fog. When we got there, you could hardly see anything, but I did manage to get a few pictures draped in fog. There is a nice little Cafe up on top so we just ate lunch there and walked the 3.5 km back down. I just walked around town and looked in shops the rest of the day.

We all met back up at 6:30 p.m. to go to dinner. We went to a pizza place the night before and thought about going there again tonight because they have a Peregrino meal, but as it turned out that's only Monday through Friday so we just ordered off the regular menu. While we were eating I noticed that the sun was coming out and that all the clouds were gone and it was clear to the west. I decided that when dinner was over that I was going to walk the 7 km to the light house and back, so I went back to my room and changed into shorts and my hiking shoes and took off to the top.

When I got there it was clear as can be and not a cloud in the sky. I had great views so I stayed and hiked around for a while. The sun doesn't set until almost 11 p.m. So I had plenty of time to walk around and see everything and then walk back to town. I finally got back to my room about 9:30 p.m. and it was still completely daylight. At this point I went to my room and turned on the TV while I studied my Spanish vocabulary.

It's been a good day, and if the weather people are correct, it's supposed to be nice and even be a little warmer tomorrow. We’ll see. I will let you know then. For now...Buen Camino!
