... worst moment for this issue I would have to be sharper in future or it would be a very short trip. As my head torch died last night - a good excuse to visit all the outdoor gear shops in town - (yep one...) unfortunately it was siesta time, later. Now some would say that the Spanish are lazy! I would say that maybe they have their priorities right. And perhaps Anglo Saxons living in warm climates have it wrong. A short rode ...
... was at the back. However like a well oiled machine hey started to peel off and engines roared into life. Leaving the Port I checked the GPS - the route I had been shared was not working so - a manual input was required to Picos (note to self don't let others play with my tech...), Riding through central Santander with GPS was a dream, soon on the N... Headin south towards my destination, this is what we want. Quiet main roads compared to UK (and Perth...) ...
... enough is enough and ride to the nearest campsite and set up the tents.
The campsite is on the cliffs between two sandy coves. It is a bit like the north Cornish coast, rocky and wild. This coast does not appear very touristic. Llanes is a working town, no glitz or glitter, no postcards or silly hats. There are a number of campervans and tents on site but nobody looks like they are on holiday.
We do like mountains, especially in fine weather - nature's theme park for thrills and spectacle. Over the years we have enjoyed the Highlands of Scotland, the Italian Dolomites, Austrian, Swiss and French Alps, Pyrenees, to name a few, but I only became aware of Spain's Picos de Europa a couple of years ago during our 'Grand Tour'. On that occasion our route meant that we would be visiting in late September and we didn't think the weather would be ideal, so we would leave it ...
... we passed through a series of low, wet tunnels to emerge at the end of the gorge among the meadows of Cain.
A tremendous day.
A final culinary speciality of the Picos is the ultra-tangy blue cheeses made with untreated cow's-milk cheese and matured in mountain caves. Sophie quite enjoyed trying these; Sam rather less so.
Onward bus to Oviedo, via Arenas de Cabrales and Cangas de Onis, to Oviedo - 2.5hrs.
