We left the cozy, though a bit chilly parish albergue at 8:30 for another walk in beautiful countryside. Descended to pine forest and then long flat stretch followed by more hills. Despite the weather, seeing the beautiful almond trees as we walked kept our spirits high.
We had been surprised at how mild the weather had been so far but when you undertake a Camino in February/March one risks cold wet weather so no complaints here. Ultreia! Onward.
It started raining and we struggled. Fortunately the scenery was grand but after 4 hours we were wet and cold and just wanting a hot shower. Thankfully today was a short 22k and with no albergue we chose the comfortable Hotel El Castrejon in Cebreros. Best of all they had a bathtub. Wonderful on these cold, wet, windy, winter days.
Bar Amistad in main plaza had a friendly waiter and they offered up a good meñu del dia.
