... 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 ...
Reflecting on the departure from Plymouth I found it hard to believe that well after the scheduled departure time more bikes, cars and campers were still boarding the Ferry.

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.
