The weather was again beautiful, although very windy. Most of the day’s walking was on trails through pine forests, which were very enchanting. We were also blessed with some beautiful views of the rugged coastline. There has been a general reduction in the number of pilgrims on the trail. After the massive reductions from Santiago, there has been a further diminution of pilgrims on the leg from Finisterre to Muxía. 

We are staying the night in the small hamlet of Lires which boasts pretty views of the beach and surrounding countryside. 

Tomorrow we have a 15 kilometre walk to Muxía and that will be the end of our Camino journey. Unreal.

Horreos actually do have corn stored in them
