60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What About the Meal That Lingers in Your Memory?

Hello to you listening in Pascoe Vale South, Melbourne , Australia!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.
Leaving Navarette in the early morning dark I was guided back to the Camino by a very old woman leaning over her geranium-potted balcony, “Peregrina, ve por ese Camino.”
The albergue served no breakfast but the coffee machine produced a pretty fine double espresso for 1 Euro – enough to get going. Along the way I met up with Claire from Ireland. Together we walked on in the early morning delighted to leave the fields for a small village with an open café.
I ordered an Aquarius Naranja, a bocadillo with jamon and queso – basically a big fresh crusty roll with a big slice of ham and another of cheese, plus a wedge of Spanish tortilla which is like a deep-dish, sliced potato quiche, and a chocolate croissant … for later.
Wha? I was walking 15 or more miles a day. I needed fuel. And company. Pilgrims I’d not seen for a time where there as well enjoying the sunshine. I sat with Roger from Ireland, Angela from Hong Kong and my 3 German friends all sharing breakfast and stories.
When I left I still had the croissant but after a few more miles walking uphill I found myself in a vineyard which seemed like a fine place to enjoy the view and the croissant.
The Camino has food for the soul and belly; some tastes better with company and some is pretty good estoy solo.
