Camino Green Belt

John 4:14 But whoever drinks of the water that I will give him shall never thirst; but the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life.

Day 19 — 16.71 Miles —Boadilla del Camino to Carrión de Los Condes, May 16. Today was very pleasant.  We walked along the Canal de Castille until it ended outside of Frómista. 

An alternate trail started just after Población de Campos. The temperature was still hot so we decided to follow the Camino “Green Belt”.  The “Green Belt” was approximately 1/2 mile longer.  It was a 1/2 mile that was well worth the walk.   If we had stayed on the main Camino trail, the day would have been hot and uncomfortable as the main trail paralleled a highway.  There were no trees on the main trail.  The optional “Green Belt” route was shaded. Rio Ucieza was on our right and fields of wheat were on our left.  This section of the Camino was approximately 7 miles long.  The path meandered and the birds serenaded us for the entire seven miles. The cottonwoods had left their covering of “snow” on the ground.  The sound of sneezing added to the sound of the birds.  Thank goodness for Allegra allergy pills.

Tomorrow we will walk to Ledigos. Buen Camino. Sharon and Ron

  1. Any possibility you stayed at the Monastery in Carrion? They have a few private rooms and it was really nice for a Thirteenth Century building.


    1. They are in full swing here and I only have 5 allergy pills left. Allegra is not sold in Spain. I will have to try Claritin. Glad you are enjoying the adventure!
