A fabulous cool day. We slept again in a hotel in Najera, getting some snacks from the local Supermercado (supermarket), and eating in our hotel room. This avoided the problem of having to wait until 8:30pm + to get dinner, and if we are lucky getting to bed after 10pm. Last night we went to sleep at the unheard of time of 7:30pm, and we got a great nights sleep (which we needed).
It rained in the morning, but by the time we left at 9:00am it had stopped and we had a great day of cool walking. The temperature never got above 20C. We seemed to meet a lot of pilgrims on the trail today, and when we got to Santo Dominigo at a bit before 4pm, the first Albergue was already full. We are staying at the Hostel run by the Nuns at the back of the albergue. We did 23km today.
