Sunday morning we walked across the Roman bridge from our Parador into Salamanca. When we were in the old town Saturday night the place was packed with people. Sunday morning it was almost empty which allowed us to appreciate the buildings.
About half way through our back roads drive to Avila we came upon Ermita de las Fuentes, a wonderful old church near the ridge top a long way from the nearest habitation. They had picnic tables so we had a wonderful picnic.
We found our Parador in Avila fairly easily. After our welcome drinks and the obligatory Duke vs Butch cribbage game we went out to walk the wall surrounding Avila. The wall is quite amazing. It is more than three kilometers long and very tall and formidable.

Does Duke have a new yellow ball cap? I am loving your travel postings but I truly miss you.

The hat is one he got at a volunteer day for the Tahoe Pyramid Bike Way a couple of years ago. It is great for finding him in a crowd. I miss you too! See you in three weeks!
