Roncesvalles to Zubiri

Roncesvalles charmed us all in the morning with a wakeup duet singing Morning Has Broken complete with a guitar accompaniment. After the hard Pyrenees crossing we gave ourselves an easy 7.5 km walk to Espinal. The B&B we stayed there was OK but the owner lady was stingy on the heating.

Today (day 4) was again wet in the morning but worse was to come when we had to descend down a steep rocky path covered in mud close to Zubiri . We were eventually assisted by a few Spanish youths over a particularly impossible stretch including a timely advice that we should remove the rubber tips from our poles.

Zubiri appeared to be a town thriving on pilgrims with new building and friendly service. We were even able to have very decent meals at 6pm!
