    Continued from Camino Inglés: Ferrol to Neda

    Later in the afternoon, I felt like exploring Neda. I walked along the river to cross a small bridge over the Ria Ferrol.

    I did yoga on this grass.

    I tried to catch an evening mass at this church, but it was closed.

    This is a boat dock on the Ria Ferrol

    There’s a sweet little playground near the river

    A teenage couple were playing on a zipline! Check out this video.

    Before sunset, I walked to a special pilgrim church in the other direction.

    This church was dedicated to pilgrims during the 2004 Holy Year.

    Naturally, it was closed! Good thing one can pray anywhere.

    The sky was breathtakingly beautiful, when I returned to Pension Maragoto. I was so glad we upgraded to private rooms instead of staying in the muni albergue! If you don’t mind paying a little more, reserve a room with a river view in advance. Details at www.pensionmaragoto.com/ They also have have a good restaurant with menu del dia for € 9 dinner.

    View from my room in Neda. I’m glad I didn’t take the shortcut bridge to Pontedeume!

    I logged another four miles in my wanderings that afternoon and evening, so it ended up being a 15 km day. Fortunately, there is a market across from the pension. I bought an ice cream and some cherries, which I washed in the little sink in my room.
    (I exceeded the 20 photo limit here, but more photos on the original post at:

    Up next, Neda to Pontedeume.
