On our walk today we passed two different groups of walkers, one group from France who had guessed us to be from Canada or someplace in the north. Now why would that be?? Another group had an Italian guide and were from Virginia. We had two French gentlemen pass us that had the El Camino De Santiago shell on their packs which told us they had done that pilgrimage at some time. We stopped for lunch, pizza, salad and drinks in a little village called San Quirico d'Orcia.
Our best reward yet came when we got to Bagno Vignoni and checked into the Hotel delle Terme. The hotel has wonderful relaxing mineral hot springs. Just what our tired muscles needed!
