Torres del Rio, s small village with some rich history. After climbing a very steep hill I came upon this vista.
Country side filled with wheat, vines and long views. Air temp in the low 60s, heart temp in the high 90s! BTW, lots of LBBs (little brown birds) in the orchards and field.
The roof art has been catching my eyes for days. I finally took an image. Note the active sky!
Another superb menu del dia. The starter was baby artichokes and jamon in sauce.
We're entering the Rioja region! Great red wines.
Merluza and peas with baked cubes potatoes. Always perfectly salted."
Layered chocolate and vanilla cake with dried berries and carmelized sugar.$
We pushed through 11 miles today. The distance was morphed by the rigorous ups and downs, the song bird melodies and my mental activity. Still no aches and pains. Hmmmmm.
