Riolobos to Galisteo

May 6 – We stopped in the Riolobos plaza to say good morning to the storks before heading out of town.  I love how dozens of smaller birds make their nests inside the tall stork nests.  Always such a flurry of activity and birdsong in the morning.

Today we are walking to Galisteo, seven miles north. Most hikers pass this town by without stopping, but we are going to spend the day.  We walk over an old footbridge.

…and admire some pretty flowers or weeds, depending on your perspective, growing by the side of the road.

We pass a solar energy farm, just drinking up those rays.  Southern Spain is the perfect place for solar power.

Galisteo doesn’t show up in our online resources, but local tourists come here to spend a day in the old walled city.  The wall was built by the Muslims, of course.  They really liked walls.  The houses now exceed the confines of the walls, so there is an inner city and an outer city.

We climbed to the top of the wall and walked all around the city.

Our guidebook raved about the food at our bar/hostal and they were so right.  Purple cabbage and shrimp was unbelievably good. Best meal we’ve had in a month!
399 miles to go.

    1. I’m sure you’re correct, Doug, but the ones at home aren’t three feet high! Impressive in both their size and ability to thrive in the cracks of the pavement. 🌺🌻🌸
