Viana to Logroño
Leaving Viana, we saw a beautiful portal and stepped through, expecting to see a historic church. Instead, all was ruin, the evidence of time.
Coming into Logroño, we saw storks flying overhead, and then their nests on top of poles and spires. We crossed the bridge over the Ebro River and made our way to the Pilgrims’ Fountain, which has above it the escutcheon for Logroño (pictured above).
A medieval fair is in town, and we briefly stopped at some booths along the route to our hotel. Later, waiting for my laundry, I sat near an elderly gentleman who clearly delighted in feeding the doves. He didn’t mind having his picture taken, either!
Your pilgrims are suffering from the walking and the constant moving from day to day. I caught a cold in Pamplona, which has now jumped over to James. Lots of aches and pains.
