10th March 2011 – Palencia

10 03 2011

We were both dead against the idea of traveling over four hours again today so we had a bit of a lie in and then a good walk with Jack along the path that we discovered yesterday that runs all along the river, down the side of the golf course and then back toward the town. We had a little browse around the town and then returned to the motorhome for a light lunch. Later in the day we decided to have a more exhaustive look around the town as we still hadn’t really seen that much of it. It’s a nice place, much nicer than we had originally thought on previous visits. A wide paved high street which stretches for a good distance, nice looking shops, the occasional bar and buildings that rise high up but with nice old features. We stumbled across various squares that sit in front of places like the council offices and the beautiful Gothic cathedral. Lorna got into the shopping spirit and came away with a nice pair of boots as well.

Dinner was a home made chicken curry which we had with a bottle of Portuguese vinho verde and then we had an early night in preparation for our long journey out of Spain and back into France tomorrow.
