Progress was slow. I teamed up with Mel and Sophia. We had an enjoyable time walking along but I suspect in talking as we did, our progress was slower. Then we struck trouble. It started with a way marker fallen over on its side, so we simply had no idea where it was pointing! It meant walking both routes to see if there were other way markers. There was one to the right but it was pointing in the opposite direction, to Santiago rather than Finnesterre. The only way was to backtrack and start again further down the line. In reading a commentary afterwards it seemed that there were 2 routes - a summer and a winter one, and we had somehow got tangled between the two.
We eventually made it in pouring weather, arriving at Olverroa absolutely soaking at about 7.30pm.
The albergue didn't really have any warming clothes facilities apart from small bar heaters. After attempting to dry ourselves, we went across to the restaurant 100 metres away and got soaked again in the process. The meal was great. I left about 9.30pm for a good nights sleep in the aubergie.
