... and then. The funny thing was every time we get close to a cape, strong gust come with big swell and breaking waves which made us a little uncomfortable; then as soon as we pass the wind drops and sea calms a little as if it was trying to tell us something?!? The most amazing scene was just before entering the bay of Gijon, this long fish jumped out of the wave then dived into another! Perhaps that was the welcome ...
... of my mum, sister and I on the Roman Bridge in this entry, some may be in the blog itself, others may be at the bottom of the blog, along with others. Spain is very influenced by the places around it, and the places who had conquered it, even if it was conquered about 2’000 years ago, so Spain is quite roman influenced, it’s also very Arabian influenced, because it’s near places like Morocco, which is very Arabian.

The town itself was fairly modern, with a few hidden gems.
A most pleasant stay.
