Rabanal to El Acebo on October 8th

Breakfast at the Refuge Gualcemo was basic toast and jam and coffee.  I mention that this is a donativo, pilgrims only alburgue.  You pay what you can and if you aren’t walking and carrying your stuff you can’t stay there.  I also didn’t mention that they had tea at five every day.  We had to be out of the alburgue at eight so we were up early.  We were still the last ones out though at about 8:20.  It was cool and clear and we had about a 9 mile walk to El Acebo.  We walked up the mountain to Cruz de Ferro where we left a stone representing something we wanted to leave there, our burdens, sins, etc.  Some pilgrims are see emotional here and some others take pictures and walk on.

It was a hard walk into Acebo but we got double rooms in a new alburgue with a swimming pool. Dinner was fair but the four of us enjoyed it.  Ag was feeling better and it was another grand day on the Camino.
