Spanning Time

Day 6
Pamplona to Puente La Reina

Puente La Reina (The Queens’s Bridge) has spanned this hamlet since the 12th century.   The guide books say that historians are not sure which of two queens had it built. What?  If a king had built it….but let me not get off on that particular hobbyhorse. How many millions of pilgrim feet have traversed these stones? What a timeless, serene, and beautiful image it is for this town.

On this day, James and I started our new regime of going by bus halfway and walking the rest of the way, about 10 kilometers.  Better and easier for us!  More time for reading and napping and having a leisurely lunch.  I think we may have finally hit our stride.
