Estella to Los Arcos – Part 1

Distance walked today: 21.7 kilometres
Total distance travelled so far: 139.4 kilometres

What a difference a decent night’s sleep makes. I felt much more human when I woke up and was looking forward to today’s walk, where I would come to one of the iconic spots along the Camino, the pilgrim wine fountain at the Bodegas Irache. I’d heard all about this fountain from my research: one spout provides drinkable water; the other red wine. Unfortunately the fountain had not yet been turned on for the day when Jo Anne, Moya and myself arrived (we were there at about 7:30 in the morning) but we snapped some photos all the same.

Notice the brace on my left knee. It was continuing to give me a lot of pain, so much so that on this particular day I had put a second brace over the first one. It helped somewhat although I think I was cutting off my circulation in the process because when I looked down at my foot later in the day it was purple!
