Ventosa to Santo Domingo de la Calzada – Part 2

Today’s walk was a long one, although quite beautiful. I was in the heart of wine country and passed acres and acres of vinyards, with the vines growing in soil so rocky you’d think nothing could survive. I also passed canola fields that marked the landscape with their swatches of bright yellow.

The stork nests were starting to appear too, which I was very excited about. They were absolutely beautiful!  When I later reviewed my Camino photos after my trip, I chuckled at the dozens of photos I took of storks. Clearly they became somewhat of an obsession of mine.

Note the rocky soil in this vinyard!
Balconies with shell motif. The shell has become a symbol of the Camino and is seen everywhere.
