Hueneja to Abla – 15 miles
Saying goodbye to the other pilgrims we continued towards Alba. Much of this day the path was in a river bed with wind turbines in the foothills.
We also followed the old Royal Road linking Almeria with Granada.
We had lunch in Finana and a wedding was going on.
We arrived near nightfall in Alba with a darkening sky and threatening rain we tried to get the key for the albergue only to learn all was closed for Sunday. As a last try I called the president of the Almeria Jacobean Association and she and her husband drove over to let us in. The albergue is new and beautifully decorated with local photos; there’s even a washer and dryer!
