With beautiful morning light the path ascends back to the high Meseta plateaux
The view back to Castrojeriz was stunning and life felt good to be on the Meseta stages.
The Way took me to the villages of Itero de la Vega, Boardilla del Camino, Frómista and several smaller villages. The water in the river valleys looked inviting and was always spanned by bridges that are probably Roman in origin

|Part of the canal system at Frómista|
|Storks nest on convenient high perches, in this case the top of a grain silo system|
In Carrión de los Condes I stayed at the Hostel of the Filipense Sisters. The accommodation was €22 with lovely beds, proper sheets and hot showers. Unfortunately it was deserted with no pilgrim merriment. I amused myself eating avocado, cheese, ham and crisps with my feet in the river
