... preparing the head sail under power. It started quite nice at midday with the full main beam reaching out of the bay then just before I had the angle to pass the cape, heavy swells with strong gust made me hold action. Having out the outboard inside, the main was not enough to power us through these big breaking waves. Then I remembered all the basics again, little small simple things makes high difference at ...
... 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 ...

better word) a rather awkard night with the swell rolling in ever so
gently which reminded us of Alderney and Dale (Pembrokeshire) where
we would roll and come to an abrupt halt with a squeak of the ropes

where there was no pontoon just an abrupt halt). At least we got a
decent sail in the day before and did not have to pay for the berth.
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.
