    One last day of walking... famous last words but this time I think we mean it. Today we walked just short of 30kms from Muxía to Finisterre. It was by far the wettest walk we have done with everything completely saturated. The coastline between Muxía and Finisterre is totally exposed to the Atlantic Ocean and we had head wind blowing rain into our faces for most of the way. Our “waterproof” goretex shoes and our “waterproof” jackets and bag covers were no match for Mother Nature today. My jacket was meant to be waterproof for up to 8 hours walking and 10mm of rain - not the case Cederberg!

    It was a beautiful walk though despite the rain especially the cape at Muxía which we walked to first thing this morning and it feels right to finish in Finisterre.

    We are off to the Cape Finisterre later tonight to hopefully see the sunset but not sure there will be much to see given the weather 🤞
