Povoa de Varzim to Esponsende

Walking Day 18: 19 km, 4.5 hrs

The walk today was flat, and about half on the coast and half through agricultural areas. It was sunny with a cool sea breeze.

There were lots of para-sailors and kite-surfers in Esposende. The stiff breeze and a protected River Cavado estuary were perfect for it.

We met fellow pilgrim Ilt (short for an unpronounceable Welsh name) and had a lively dinner with a wide ranging conversation and lots of laughs. Paul called Ilt and me “brothers from another mother”.
