I now totally understand why it is called a weather forecast because we should only use as guidance like the Gps. As technology improves sometimes we are so easy to reply on it, then when nature shows us the real world maybe it could be a bit late to realize. Well we had another great little sail today, I was planning to fly the spinnaker easy surf west with the predicted north easterly force 3 or 4 so left the ...
... and had lunch at restaurant next to the stream. After lunch we walked a few more tracks, then caught the funicular back down the train station and drove back to the house.
Another one of the days, we drove to a bus stop near our house, in the village. We caught a bus up to the bottom of a walk, which went up to an amazing viewing point of 2 lakes called the Lakes of Covadonga. Which is also part of the Picos de Europa national ...

We spent a few days in Gijon which was a very interesting town, with a wonderful atmosphere and great cultural activities. We just happened to be there whilst a cultural festival was going on. Each evening there was a concert by the marina, which displayed the various styles of music of the (Asturian) region.
The town itself was fairly modern, with a few hidden gems.
A most pleasant stay.
